Caprie - Sperone del Paleolitico


  • Caprie - Turin

  • Access: Coming from Turin at the exit of the West Avigliana ring road at the roundabout take the SS 24 for Susa. After about 2.5 km there are the two roundabouts of Villar Dora. After the last roundabout, another three km is covered and on the right (third street on the right) is Caprie. Continue on the road until the first intersection. Go through the intersection and continue on the road between the houses for about 100 meters. On the left there is a short way that in front of the Caprie area. Park possibly along the road from which you arrive. At the end of the short route indicated above is the first sign that describes the via ferrata. Continue along the path, pass the billboard on the left that describes the paths of the Anticaprie cliff and following the signs for the via ferrata climb for about 50 meters. At the sign indicating on the left the attack of the ferrata continue on the path for another 20 meters. On the left there is an uphill path with signs for Rocca Nera, Roc d'Abuc, Dahu and Malizie. Follow the green spiral-shaped stickers that lead up to the base of the cliff. The path is the same as the Plaque of Malice but at some point the path deviates to the right and goes up. About 25 minutes from the parking lot. technical notes: The cliff is placed under the white rock, then along the long routes you can concatenate the streets of the Rocca Bianca without having to descend from above. The rock is serpentine but very different from all other crags in the area. Climbing is very athletic and demanding as the wall is completely vertical with roofs and in some points slightly overhanging. Single pitches are all new.
