Description

In the center of Corsica we find Corte: a small town as the perfect base to go on great rock climbing adventures. The region is mountainous and with lakes. The cliffs we can climb are of beautiful limestone and granite.

There are several options for rock climbing in the area: the Restonica valley, the Tavignanu valley, the Verghellu valley and Popolasca. The routes are very different, but all the options I propose range from D (difficult) to ED (extremely difficult). Therefore, you need rock climbing experience and a good physical condition.

Many of the routes I propose are at the Restonica valley. It is one of the most beautiful valleys in Corsica and the rock climbing options here stretch for over 10 kilometers. We can go to the Pointe des 7 lacs (2226m), where we climb the Symphonie d’automne (280m, TD). Or to the Pain de sucre (2100m), to climb L’oubliée (220m, TD+). At the Punta Spenicazzia (1506m) we can climb the Acqua di rocca (200m, TD+) or the Candella di l’oro (200m, D+). And at the Monte Leonardo (1146m) a great option is the Amandulina (200m, TD). I also offer many options at the Lombarducciu (2261m), the Punta San Teofalu (1720m), Pointe de la Touffe (1751m) and Punta u Finellu (1565m).

At the Tavignanu valley there are some fantastic options at the Rossolinu (908m) and the Punta Finosa (1855m). And if you choose Verghellu, we can go to the Ponte 976 (976m) or to the Cervellu (1075m). A great option in Castiglione is the Rundinaia (1750m), and finally at Popolasca I love going to Monte Bertonze (1600m).

As you can see, the choices are almost endless in this climbing paradise in Corte. So you just have to choose where you want to start climbing!

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.
