Escalades au bord de la mer, entre Gênes et La Spezia.
Muzzerone: A white overhanging rock face overlooking the blue sea, with a view over Corsica, the Apuan Alps, Porto Venere and the Island of Palmaria.
The climbing is in the sun surrounded by sea gulls: it seems like a dream but it is reality, close to a World Heritage Site, the Cinque Terre.
The grades are never extreme, multi pitch routes with bolts placed nearby and with short approach walks, but surrounded by a wild environment where the sound of the wind and the deep void accentuate the feeling of being totally immersed in nature.
It is possible to climb here all year round, until the last rays of sunshine are visible on the horizon.
Porto Venere , the “sixth” of the Cinque Terre, enchanting lands, is only half an hour on foot or 10 minutes by car.
To give you an idea of the immensity of the feelings evoked by Muzzerone, breathtaking images and videos with a bird’s eye view over all the main sectors have been added to this edition.
