Interprete with James and Caro, our tricks!!!


Interprete was never on our list beforehand. But after a last minute change of plan, we decided to cross Italy west to east, from Napoli to Venise, via Interprete, an obscure bouldering place next to the famous Mescia (sadly forbidden).
Arriving to Interprete, a  microscopic half dead village, means driving through tiny roads. We arrived on a dark, rainy and windy night, parked quite blindly, slept. And woke up the next day in front of a huge boulder...the morning was promising!

How to get there:
Interprete is next to the town of Ascoli Piceno, West of St Benedetto del Tronto.
From Ascoli Piceno, drive towards Rocca Fluvione, Then Montegallo, then Castro. The village of Interprete is 5 minutes from Montegallo. After passing the sign post of Interprete, drive 1 or 2 minutes, park in a hair pin. The boulders are just above.

Where to climb:
We didn’t find any topo, but we met a couple of local climbers who showed us a few boulders. The place is amazingly crowded with blocs, and  you can have a full day of fun without being enslaved by the grades!

Where we slept:
We parked the van in a hair pin, just next to the boulders. Attention, the whole forest in a chest nut forest, and in season the subject always get delicate!

Where we ate:

At the end of the village of Castro, there is a bucher on the left, where we found so amazing lamb ribbs...
