Sasso del Falco
The crag is about 1000 meters above sea level, immersed in the panoramic beech-woods of the Pistoia Apennines. The place is immersed in the absolute quiet.
- Section: toscana
Access: When you arrive in the town of S. Marcello, take the Gavinana direction and then go to Pratorsi. After the observatory, continue for about 4 km, at the first real hairpin bend on the right, there is a clearing where to leave the car. Walk a few more meters on the road and then left a path in the woods marked by little men that leads to the cliff in 5 minutes. In the mountains there are other areas always of sandstone with characteristics similar to those described above or of different nature. Both for development and for the quality of the rock. Just before the Sasso del Falco there are another 2 rocks of about ten meters already cleaned and ready to be tasted by climbers, both in top-rope and in grit.

Exposure: The recommended attendance is late spring. Summer with morning and late afternoon, and autumn. Avoid after heavy rains. In April of last year, there was a landslide of part of the initial front of the cliff. The failure did not affect the existing routes but made the access a little more airy and less hospitable.
Gear: The nailing of the streets was carried out, in part by the writer and some friends at their own expense; partly with the contribution of the councilorship to the sport of the municipality of S. Marcello Pistoiese.
Rock: The rock is a block sandstone with plaques and light overhangs. Morphologically very varied, flares and holes, but also notches and cracks. The routes present, have been made safe, both by falling stones, and in the proper nailing for the sandstone. This to look for the necessary solidity criteria may sometimes seem illogical. Climbing athletic and not easy intuition, some itineraries would like more cleaning.
