Luco dei Marsi

The first routes of this climbing spot were established in the early nineties, through the work of Toto Capassi. Then, in 2005, the work was continued by some local climbers, who revamped the already existing routes and set many new lines. At now (September 2020) there's a total of 43 lines, offering by a various climbing.

Due to its exposure, the wall is good for climbing in the morning during the winter days, and in the afternoon in the summer.

Pay attention to the rock quality, because come rockfalls may occur, so that the use of the helmet is strongly recommended.

Besides, at now no one cares about the chains at the top of the routes. Thus when you climb top rope a route it would be good to hang from a carabiner of personal use. A rope of 60m is enough to climb all the routes of this spot.


From Roma, Pescara and L’Aquila:

Take the highway Roma-Pescara to Pescara, and exit at Avezzano. Then take the SS690 Avezzano-Sora road (following the signs to Avezzano) but don't enter into the city of Avezzano.

Continue for about 5km. Once at a long straight, pass a petrol station and take the exit to Area Industriale [=industrial area].

Continue, entering the Nucleo Industriale [=industrial center] up to a big roundabout. Turn right and continue on Alfredo Nobel road following the signs to Luco dei Marsi. Once at another roundabout, turn right taking Via Cavour road and continue for about 500m. Once at a long straight, look for a widening on the left side of the road: it's the parking spot.
