Pennavalley Climbing

Crags ranging from Albenga’s hinterland to the lower Cuneo area: val Neva, val Pennavaire

In Albenga’s hinterland, not far from Finale Ligure, there is an unspoilt valley, covered in cherry trees, olive groves, mushrooms and truffles: a biological abundance which exists thanks to the presence of the Pennavaire, the thriving torrent which flows vivaciously and wild. A dense network of paths joins up the various hamlets surrounded by woods, medieval historic centres and bridges from another era. If you are tired of crowded crags and car parks, the fines and the locals who stare at you as if you were all vandals, this is the place for you! Here the few local inhabitants see climbing as an opportunity to develop, and their welcome is magnificent. It is possible to lose oneself among the greenery without ever seeing humans, and it is possible to jump into the torrent naked, discovering a roe deer spying on you. The crags are splendid. The climbing is modern, consisting of long and sustained pitches, well bolted following the modern concept of safety, due to the recent discovery of this area vertically speaking. The crags range from the first ones in the nearby area of Castelbianco, among which Terminale and Erboristeria, to the new gems in the upper valley, with their base being the hamlet of Alto.
