20-04-10, Finale, Italy - Rock Climbing

Finale Ligure seen high up from Rocca di Perti

The last week, I drove south from Chamonix to Italy to try and escape the poor weather which had been forecast. On the way to Finale we climbed a nice 250m sport route at Arnard Bard in the Val d'Aosta. The wether has been mixed in Finale, from hot sunshine to overcast skies and heavy rain! We have managed 4 days sports cragging which has been ace. Finale truely is an awesome place. Steep, solid pocketed limestone, with buttresses hidden all over the valley from 10m - 200m in height. It is well bolted and feels sharp and maybe hard for the grade! It is well worth a visit, for the beauty, climbing, training, if nothing else its chilled out vibe, and for coffee and pizza by the beach!

An amazing 30m 5+ sport route on Monte Sordo
