All the crags from Val Chiavenna to the Stelvio Pass. One hundred different proposals for the third edition of a guidebook reviewing a wide and rich area, where you can climb at any difficulty level and all year round. Including must-go places like Sasso Remenno, very near to Val di Mello, or the Zoia crag in Valmalenco. The guidebooks features as well sport climbing multipitches, such as the Precipizio di Strem in Val Bodengo or the walls around Bormio, a true climbing galore for those who want to combine alpine holidays with free climbing. Finally, a fine selection of the crags in nearby Switzerland – namely, in Engadin, a perfect destination for summer climbing.
About the Authors
Andrea Pavan, born in Como, moved to Sondrio, where he works as a geologist. He climbs since 1996, and he’s a member of Ragni di Lecco. After the first experiences on the Alps with ice-climbing, ski-mountaineering and mountaineering, he decided to focus on rock climbing, sending important and hard routes in Val Masino, in the Alps and in Peru. He prefers to engage in high difficulty slabs, and as well in bouldering: he has cleaned and repeated hundreds of blocs, especially in Valtellina. He’s the author of Melloboulder, the reference guidebook for bouldering in Valtellina.
Guido Lisignoli is an Alpine Guide since 1982. He owns and manages the Camping Acquafraggia in Piuro, a popular climbing destination. He had climbed all over the world, and has explored and set new routes especially in Valchiavenna. He authored several guidebooks, including Solo Granito (with Mario Sertori) from Versante Sud.
Martino Quintavalla lives in Bormio, and is a student of materials engineering. He started climbing at 13, focusing especially on bouldering and multipitches. He set new routes in Valtellina and climbed in UK, Ireland and Spain.
