Something about Grotti Alta


Big cliff of conglomerate with pockets.

The climb is sometimes painful and difficult for both hands and feet. Overall, the climb is almost never very technical, but you need to be powerful: the most frequent movement is the front closure on the opposite foot.

Typical climbing spot by locals, as the way, which at first sight are very difficult, allow themselves to be tamed (with the rotpunkt): you need to get used to this cliff, especially for the training of the tendons.

Most of the routes of high difficulty presents handholds chipped.


From Rome take the A1 highway towards Florence, exit at Fiano Romano, just before the barrier Roma Nord. From here take the SS4 Salaria towards Rieti. Shortly before Rieti, after a long gallery often closed for renovation, exit to the right along another stretch to four lanes and pass another gallery. Exit immediately after this second tunnel and take the SR 578 Cicolana on the left. Overcoming the village Casette. After a bridge, turn immediately on the left and park. Here you can park in the Grotti la Cura sectors and Grotti new sector. If you want reach Grotti High and Depot, continue to the first houses of the Grotti village, and park right where is the board "Grotti". From here, an easy track leads to the walls already visible.
