What is multipitch climbing?
Climbing multipitch is climbing on routes that develop on several successive rope pitches…
In these wonderful cliffs you will find classic and numerous modern lines. Walls of Finale Ligure are not very high so routes are not too long, but the environment and the beauty of climbing make multipitch climbing one of the strengths of vertical sports in Finale.
Routes are often equipped or re-equipped with modern material (resinated taps) but there are still routes that are equipped in a classic way (nails, hourglasses and old bolts).
Here are the most famous cliffs, but not the only ones:
Rocca degli Uccelli: a recently rediscovered historical sector; climbing is prohibited in this sector from 1 January to 31 July.
Monte Cucco: in the history of the Finale Ligure there is certainly this sector, these are historical routes and the material in place is consequently.
Rocca di Perti: two faces, north and south rich in routes; many classics and some modern lines; several routes with moderate difficulty.
Bric Pianarella: the highest wall of Finale, great aerial climbing, for many but not for all.
Capo Noli: A unique spot! Finale’s longest routes winds across a few meters from waves.
Scoglio del Butto – Rocca dell’Aia (Loano):
