Description

Situated in the Italian region of Tuscany, Pizzo d’Uccello reaches 1,781 meters of altitude and belongs to the Apuan Alps. On the north face of this beautiful mountain, we can find several rock climbing areas. Join me on this program and discover them!

First of all, we’ll meet early in the morning in the Rifugio Guido Donegani, in the Serenaia Valley. From there, we’ll take a 45-minute hike to the Foce Siggioli via ferrata that will take us around 1 hour. Afterwards, we’ll begin climbing and spend from 6 to 10 hours on this activity. Once at the top of the mountain, we’ll contemplate the stunning panorama and descend through the normal route. Finally, we’ll head back to the refuge.

One of the available options to enjoy rock climbing on this mountain is the classic route called Oppio-Colnaghi. The climb is long and demanding, but not very technically difficult. The elevation gain is about 700 meters. Furthermore, we can choose to take the Biagi-Nerli route, aimed at more advanced participants. For both routes, it is mandatory to have prior rock climbing experience as well as an excellent fitness level.

If you want to join me on this rock climbing adventure in the Apuan Alps, do not hesitate to send the request to book your place. We’ll be happy to guide you!

Another great rock climbing option in Tuscany is this program in Monte Lieto. Check it out!
