Description

The Orco Valley is a wild and beautiful place in Piedmont, famous for its amazing rock climbing opportunities. On this 1-day tour, I will take you to the best walls and crags for your level.

The Orco Valley has gained a great reputation for granite crack climbing. In this stunning spot, we can find steep walls, cracks, and slabs, as well as a wide variety of routes to choose from.

Some walls are more difficult to climb than others. However, there are options for all levels. We will find the best suited for you. Some of the options that we can choose from include: the Sergent Wall, Caporal Wall, Aimonin Tower, and some other structures in the valley or in the higher Piantonetto valley or Soana Valley. Whichever we choose for you will grant you an amazing climbing experience.

Don't miss the chance to climb in this granite haven! Contact me today and we can start planning an unforgettable rock climbing adventure in the Orco Valley.

About the guide

My name is Piergiorgio. I was born in the warm south of Italy and grew up in Florence where I first started climbing.

At the age of 21 I graduated with a degree in Forestry and Environmental Sciences, yet rock climbing had energized my life in such a positive way that I realized that I had to live fully in the vertical world.

It was then that radically transformed my life to pursue my dream of becoming a Mountain Guide and so I moved to Torino to gain the experience and skills required to pass the rigors of my trade.

I'm an IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Join me! I can’t wait to share my greatest passion with enthusiasm and awareness in my favorite environments. After gaining experience and increasing my ability in each discipline, I participated in the IFMGA Aspirant Mountain Guides course and graduated in 2017. Nowadays, my greatest passion is to share with enthusiasm and awareness the most incredible environment: our Alps.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
