Petrella Liri Climbing Area, L'Aquila Province

Rock Climb Italy, Petrella Liri Site

A nice crag located at 1200 meters in the mountains, a place that is nice and cool in the summer. The site does not enjoy a great reputation due to it being a cliff that was developed when "rock ethics" were different. The cliff offered either hard routes above the climbing level at the time so a few holds were manufactured and artificial holds glued on. The site has many technical routes at a high level. Petrella Liri is a climbing site worth visiting if you are in the area and if you want a secondary activity on your non-climbing days the cliff is located on the same road as one of the hardest bicycle climbs in Italy the "Blockhaus", utilized in the Giro d'Italia.
