Costalungo Climbing Area, Vicenza Province
COSTALUNGO CLIMBING AREA | VICENZA
Costalungo was developed several years ago, and it is a great surprise. From an old mining areas, but this area this site has a different vibe offering quality routes on good rock. The routes are good and as natural as can be after the cutting, which occurred about 100 years ago. The site sits above the city of Bassano del Grappa on the road leading up to Monte Grappa. The cliff faces to the south, and this is a great place to climb on a sunny winter day. You can also enjoy on a late summer evening as well and then head down into Bassano for a glass of wine and snack.
The weather needs to be cool for the best contact otherwise the rock can feel a bit slick. The setting at the site itself is not the greatest, but walking out onto the trail you have some wonder views of the Veneto Valley.
