Breath-taking alpine terrain with outstanding rock, ideal for summer climbing. Overhanging rock, vertical walls, and technical slabs offer something fun for climbers of all levels. Climbing on this uniquely colored rock is possible even on the hottest summer days. The rock has pink-orange shades and the color varies depending on the time of day and light conditions. Video:

Nachdem der Weg durch die Unwetter des Jahres 2020 beschädigt worden war, gibt es jetzt eine leicht geänderte Wegführung. Eine Gartenschere leistet gute Dienst - lange Hosen gegen Dornen tun's aber auch. An allen steilen und felsigen Stellen gibt es Fixseile! Im oberen Teil ist der Weg immer durch Steinmänchen markiert. Statt am Bunker weiter abzusteigen kann man dort auch links halten (etwas länger & nicht so steil)
Alpine climbing · Osco

Die Via Veterano (23 SL, 5a) gilt als längste Kletterroute vom Tessin und ist ein absoluter Klassiker. Wir haben die Tour mit ÖV als nette Überschreitung gemacht.
