Bouldering in Valtellina, Valchiavenna, Val Masino, Val di Mello, Val Malenco. Bouldering is a free and everchanging activity. It's so easy to go bouldering! All you need is a pair of climbing shoes, some chalk, a crashpad... ready to go!
You can actually come in contact with the rock in shorter time than in mountaineering. Valtellina is the Italian cradle of this climbing discipline, starting with the "Sassisti" movement in early Seventies, till the well-known international meeting taking place yearly in Val di Mello. In this guidebook, a result of the author's deep and everlasting passion for bouldering, are reviewed the main boulder spots in Valtellina e Valchiavenna; more than 2.000 problems, all of them carefully described and photographed, with grade indications.
The main new feature of this guidebook, compared to the previous one, "Bloc Notes", is the graphic depiction of the problems, clearly highlighted in the pics. This allows to spot the problem without any error... you can almost forget to check the map!
