Something about Falesia del Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods)


The crag ”Sentiero degli Dei” (that is “Path of the Gods”) is located along the path from which it is named: it’s one of the most spectacular paths of the Mediterraneo, that traverses from Agerola to Positano, always offering breathtaking views on the sea and on the Sorrento peninsula.

The climbing spots along this path at now are two: a cliff and a cave.

The cliff has been equipped by Francesco Galasso between 2017 and 2018 and is located at one-third of the entire path. The approach even if not short, is very comfortable and easy, without steep hills (only some easy ups and down) and with a stunning view. At two-thirds of the way, there is a nice drinking water fountain, where you can fill your bottles. Shortly before the rock wall, you can find even some picnic tables.

It is composed of three contiguous areas, that differ from each other for climbing style and/or range of difficulties.

The routes, at now, are almost 30, spread out from 4b to 7b+, and some projects. The rock wall is higher than 30m, thus the routes are almost all long.

The climbing style is various but always technical: there are overhangs, slabs, vertical walls, corners. There is even a great variety of holds: crimps, small cracks, pockets, small tufas, and, in one of the three areas, long vertical tufas.

The space at the bottom of the routes is very comfortable and wide in one of the three areas. In the other two it’s narrower, but not dangerous, and only a few meters away from comfortable clearings. Thus it’s a crag good for families with children.

The rock wall is South faced, thus good for climbing in winter, and during the cooler days of spring and autumn.

The Cave is far from the cliff, and, at now, offers only 7 routes. Though these routes are very nice and interesting because they are always in shadow and sheltered by the rain.

The rock is a good limestone. The bolts are certified and made of stainless steel 316L.


Take the highway A3 Napoli-Salerno, and exit at Castellammare di Stabia.

Once at the entrance of Castellammare di Stabia, take the SS 366 road following the signs to Gragnano (that is don’t enter into the center of Castellammare) and then the ones to Agerola.

Once at Agerola, continue straight up to a wide parking facility, at the junction with Via Casalone road.
