GORBIO


Another great set of buttresses in a secluded setting, looking out towards the hill-top village of Gorbio. Access to the village is rather tortuous, though once the there, the crags are easily reached by a 15 minute near-horizontal walk. The crag is sunny and quite popular, especially at weekends. There is a good spread of grades, plenty of lovely rock and some big pitches to go at.
