  • Access: Mendicino can be reached from Cosenza, from the road that starts from the right from the end of Via della Repubblica, behind the hospital. Distance from Cosenza Km. 9; it seems to be the ancient Pandosia degli Enotri, a thriving and prosperous city that existed between the seventh and the second century. BC It is also possible to reach it from Castrolibero, along the Campagnano river in the direction of Fontanesi. At three kilometers, at the Fontanesi junction, turn left, following the road signs. Reached the center of Mendicino, continue beyond the Cemetery until you reach the cliffs overlooking the road. The sector 'ACHERONTE' is located in front of the old bridge (Ponte Alimena) on the river Acheron, with a cave partly enclosed by a dry masonry.

  • Gear: It was funded by the CAI section of Cosenza and was created by Graziano Montel and Riccardo Quaranta, with the valid and effective help of Omar Fragomeni. Hilti fixes in M10X90 steel and Fixe stops have been used (some of these are currently without a carabiner). Momentarily the only equipped sector includes the walls on the sides of the cave, but the project of the 'King Alaric' sector on the left of the existing one is also planned. We recommend the use of a helmet.
