Rocca di Lities Settore: Cresta delle Torri

Arrampicata Lities Cresta Torri - profilo

The Rocca di Lities system is the extreme rocky Uja di Bellavarda offshoot. A curious gap called Fourquietta separates the true Rocca from the higher and wider Cresta delle Torri area. The latter offers a higher than 250 m wall, very well structured and made of grayish/green prasinite. Several multi-pitch routes have been traced and are characterized by abundant pitons and low obligatory climbing grade difficulty.

From Cantoira, reach the Lities hamlet and park the car near the S. Grato little church.


Walk along the road, which soon becomes a dirt road, through the Martinin hamlet residential area. At the end of it take the mule track and walk along it until reaching a centennial beech wood. You will pass at the foot of an area equipped with some single pitch routes. Overtake the creek and follow the steep marked trail that goes up the scree. Leave this trail when meeting a track with cairns leading to the foot of Cresta delle Torri.
