Lecco, Como e Valsassina
For almost a century the area surrounding Lecco and Como boasts a strong alpine tradition, linked to rock climbing. Rock climbing since the thirties and the legendary period of the VI grade in Grigna and Resegone, has found its chosen site. For almost thirty years the rock in the Lecco and Como area has seen a speedy and widespread diffusion of sports climbing both nationally and internationally. This volume, which has now reached its fourth edition, sums up all of the sports climbing opportunities in the crags from Lecco to Como, leaving the job of describing the multi pitch routes to a specific guide book: LARIO ROCK Pareti. Almost one hundred crags are described backed up by the customary topos and action photos which guide the reader through the most enjoyable and difficult itineraries. An interesting innovation consists of a few historical and technical in depth observations which for the first time ever, give an almost complete picture of how sports climbing has developed in this natural context, highlighting the human profile of its main protagonists.
