Lumignano with James and Caro, our tricks!!!

 


No need to go to Margaleff or Buoux, Grotti is a mix of the two.  The sustained and fingery pocket pulling will take its toll on your skin, and like its close neighbour Ferentillo, it is best to wait for a cold winters day as the Sun bakes the walls for most of the day.


How to get there...
Lumignano lies a few kilometers south of Vicenza. From Vicenza follow the highway SS247 (signposted Este), which runs alongside the Colli Berici. Turn right for Costozza and Lumignano immediately after Longare: Monte Brojon and other crags come into view shortly after the first of these two villages.

To get to "Lumignano classico", drive past the church and through the village to the end of the road. Park near the enormous boulder.


The routes...
Lumignano is one of the olest sport crags of Italy, and used to be a mecca... Today you can get realy shut done in the pocketty limstone. But if you can overcome your desillusions, you'll have amazing fun in the classicals!

Special memories in a super short 8a, atomic cafe, where I couldn't even clip tghe chain after 8 tries!

 


Where we sleept...
Lumignano even has a little parking for climbers, with tables, a fountain...

Rucola, saussages and chestnuts...
