The style of climbing is technical, usually with the crux near the end of the route. The routes are mainly single pitch, though there are some bolted routes up to 3 and 4 pitches long. However most of the crags have routes with grades between F6a and F7a. Further along the coast is Capo Noli, which offers climbing some great sea cliff rock climbing that has a totally difference character to that of Finale.

Family Activities Finale Rock Climbing Courses The developments of climbing areas and mountain bike trails have exploded the tourism to this little town on the north Italian coast between Genova and Savona. In the surrounding areas of Finale Ligure there is more rock climbing than one can explore during a large number of holidays. Another hundred, well bolted crags with acrobatic climbs on tufas and overhangs, have recently been developed by the new generation of sport climbers in the neighbor valleys.
Finale Ligure has beautiful beaches and a pleasant shopping street. The central point of reference is however Finalborgo, the charming old castle. Here climbing days start with an Italian coffee at Bar Centrale and finish with a traditional meal at the Spaghetteria, followed by amazing ice creams.
It is possible to focus a course around both single and multi-pitch climbing, although the single-pitches offers much more possibilities, especially for larger groups. We recommend accommodation in apartments, hotels or camping. Rest days from climbing can be spent on the beach, mountain biking or just eating pizza and ice cream… Best time: April till November but July-Aug it is hot.
Ability: Beginner to advanced. We offer a long weekend course with 4 day of climbing, but we are flexible in terms of climbing days for private groups. Please contact us for a quote and tailor made course.
