Something about Rosara


Discovered by Bachetti in 1974, Rosara is the most popular crag of Ascoli.

The rockwall is about 30 meters high, and 150 m long. The rock is a red-orange travertine (a typical one of this area).

The climbing style is various: there are  inclined slab, vertical wall and overhangs, but some nice corner and some chimney too.

Rosara is the favorite climbing wall of the Ascoli’s old mountaineering generation, and of the latest too.
