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!

Really great climbing experience near Cinque Terre. The location was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. 1/2 of our group was experienced and 1/2 was not. Our guide made sure to find an area to accommodate everyone's abilities. Would highly recommend this experience!

I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

Really great moments spent together with Cris (member of Roberto’s crew) who led us through a beautiful canyon close to Luca in the Garfagna region! It is really nice to visit a valley by going down a torrent and rappelling, jumping, tobogganing or swimming! It is also a very fresh activity to escape from the summer heat of Tuscany! Cris is very professional and very kind! I really recommend this activity to everyone! No need to be an expert to have fun down there!

My daughter (11 years old) and I had a nice day of sport climbing is Sant Anna above Camaiore with a great guide from Roberto's team. It was a good place to learn and do some more challenging routes as the day progressed. The views are also fantastic. Can't wait to return next year and also spend a night at a rifugio!
