Falesia del Pungitopo
Small cliff in the Pradello area, in a pleasant corner in the woods (with the vegetation the cliff becomes practically invisible) under the great bastion overlooking the western shore of Lake Lecco. The first sector, LA PIRAMIDE, is a steep white slab of solid and cracked rock, with very smooth sections and others a little overhanging. The second, LO STIVALE, is larger and more complex, with very different climbing styles even on the same pitch, passing from slightly overhanging physical sections to complicated slabs, often “without feet”. Good to excellent rock. source Larioclimb
- Section: lombardia
Access: From Lecco follow the lakeside towards Colico-Sondrio out of the city. After about 2 km, before entering the new SS36, turn right under the railway arches and continue along the road until the end of the slight slope. Leave the car just before a viaduct (so as not to hinder the parking of the residents of the houses further on). Following the signs, pass the wall upstream and go straight up the track, which then goes left and, after a short descent, enters the gravel bed of a dry stream. Climb past 2 rockfall nets, arriving on open ground. Just before the big wall, turn left and follow a steep path, at the top of which after 50 meters you meet LA PIRAMIDE. The path continues downhill to the BOOT. 15 minutes. source Larioclimb

Gear: Gianni Ronchi and Flavio De Stefani in 2011, self-financing, they recovered an old construction site of the 90s of the same De Stefani, doing a great job of cleaning on the wall and at the base. Alessandro Ronchi and Flavio De Stefani in 2019-2020 carry out the maintenance, with the addition of new pitches. source Larioclimb

Logistic: NOTE: avoid the cliff after heavy rains; the path passes under the shot of a channel 200m from the ground, normally dry, which quickly transforms into a large waterfall.
