Description

The Asco valley is located in the northwestern region of Corsica, not far from Calvi and Corte. It is a splendid area for rock climbing.

There are numerous rock climbing possibilities, with various orientations on different faces and many summits to climb.

The ambience of this valley inspires me to climb. In particular, the summit Marcia is one of the few summits that are not accessible hiking.

At Marcia, we can do the South-East ridge (240 meters, difficulty D+) or the Arche route (320 meters, difficulty TD+). The Punta Stranciacone (2151m) is another beauty: both the oblique chimney (230 meters, difficulty D) and the central chimney or Audibert route (230 meters, difficulty TD) are great options.

Or let’s climb the Punta Minuta (2556m), either the north ridge (900 meters, difficulty D/D+) or the Constant Mega Direct (450 meters, difficulty TD-). The north ridge of the Capu Larghja is another great choice (750 meters, difficulty TD).

There are even more options! Like climbing in Monte Cintu (2706m): Karlsruhe (250 meters, difficulty ED-) or Impiastrone di a Luna (230 meters, TD+). Finally, Capu Borba (2305m) offers the north-west ridge (450 meters, difficulty D+).

As you can see, the options are more than varied. So make your choice, paying attention to the difficulty of the route! If you have doubts I can of course advice you.

And we will be right next to the Bonifatu Cirque, that also offers amazing climbing terrain.

Tempted to explore the vertical world of the Asco Valley? Then don’t hesitate to contact me! Book this trip and we will make plans!

About the guide

Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.
