A nice alternative to climbing in Finale Ligure, the Castelbianco area has become one of THE destination climbing sites in Italy. The rock is of the highest quality and climbing is athletic with grades closer to the French style than Italian. The climbing site is located north of the town of Albenga in the Pennavaira valley. Castelbiano is the primary site, but there are multiple crags in the valley.
