New climbing area at Bec de Roces.
The Bec de Roces are a group of towers located at the bottom of the Sella group, in a panoramic position between the valley of Arabba and the Alta Badia, above the Campolongo Pass.
On the East side, there are three sectors of single pitches, perfect for the hot summer days, as they are in the shade from the mid day. The are 20 routes with difficulties ranging from 5b to 7a, up to 34 meters long, on vertical or slightly overhanging walls.
On the west side the are longer trad climbs (up to three pitches), from III to V +.
For these routes you need some gear and to abseil.
All the belays and many passages are bolted.
All the routes have got the name written at the base.
Pay attention to some lose rock sas the routes are new.
The routes have been equipped by the Mountain Guide Francesco Tremolada with the help of several friends including Giorgio Manica and Andrea Oberbacher, colleagues in the Alta Badia Guides company based in Corvara, Filippo Beccari and Thomas Kostner (author of: Landmanna Laugar, Jambo, Dylan & Co), Roberto Canzio, Marco Moretti and more…
We thank especially the Bec de Roces mountain hut, ideal for a refreshments at the end of climbing, which provided some of the gear used for bolting the routes.
