Monselice Climbing Area | Euganei Hills

The Monselice rock climbing area is located in an old 'cave' quarry near the town of Monselice in the Province of Padova. There one sector and the wall has around 47 routes ranging from 5c to 7c, but most of the climbs are 6a/b. There is no chance to climb when it rains and even a day or two after it can be wet on the wall and the trail leading up to the area.  This is not a destination site but if you happen to be in the area it could be a nice break for a few hours.  
 Located in the Euganei Hills south of Padova the area can be reached by train or regional bus.  The town of Monselice is an interesting visit as well as the surrounding hills.  Read more about the Euganei Hills and Padua province. 
 Please remember to respect the area and buy a local guide book.

ROCCA PENDICE CLIMBING AREA | WEST WALL

Rock Climbing Rocca Pendice Padova

Excellent wall for beginners and those just wanting to relax for the day in a quite environment.  Many of the routes are alpine style and bolts can be a bit far apart, also, many anchors do not have clips so you will need a sling so you can untie and route your rope through. If you want to set up a top rope, you can reach some of the anchors by walking along the upper crest, like wise you can walk off the climb.  Not a good place for small children or if it rains.

Rock Climb Padova, Rocca Pendice

Rocca Pendice is volcanic cliff located in the Colli Eugenai and has over 300 bolted routes to climb on. The climbing at Teolo (the other name for Rocca Pendice) is technical and takes good footwork and route reading skills. If your style if power climbing you could get 'handed you lunch' at this site, there are many mid ranges climbs that can only be done with technical sequences.

Rocca Pendice is a great area for a 2 -3 days of climbing, sitting just south of the city of Padova and located in the Euganei hills (best know for the hot springs in Abano) there is plenty to do on none climbing days, as a major wine region and protected area the Euganei hills makes for a quite and relaxing area to vacation.

Rocca Pendice rock climbing site offers a great change of pace to the limestone cliffs that dominate the region
