Summit of Rocca Provenzale – Alpinism in Maira Valley

Summit of Rocca Provenzale – Alpinism in Maira Valley

If you are up for a challenge this is for you. From down below this mountain might seems accessible but the path through the Normal Route is less steep than it seems. Although to summit it you’ll need climbing equipment (rope – 50m recommended, helmet, few quickdraws, carabinas and a belay plate) and mountaineering skills.

Handholds and supports are still numerous but you’ll need to climb the most of the way. It is quite a long route and be extremely cautious on the way down, not always easy to find. Avoid this climb in case of fog, or even worse, rain as this mountain is made of quartzite which becomes extremely slippery when wet.
