Gola della Rocchetta
La Gola della Rocchetta is located just above the town of Gualdo Tadino, 1 km from the center. It is a calcareous rock crag characterized by the presence of an immense 60 m wall, made unique by a long roof of more than 3 meters of rare beauty, which obliquely cuts the imposing compact and vertical plate. The Paretone (or Big-Wall Sector) also enjoys a magnificent view of the city of Gualdo T., a view that takes on special significance especially during night climbing (a common practice among the locals of the Raboclimbing group), and on the Coda del Diavolo, one of the most evocative natural works of the Gola della Rocchetta. It is a long vertical fissure dug out of the water in the calcareous rock of the gorge, just at the point where it becomes narrower and harsher. The recent work of the locals has resulted in just 30 years of work already 30 complete routes, all with bolts and chains. The degrees of difficulty are for all tastes: we can only say that you start with the 4th but you still do not know what is the highest degree, many routes are still waiting to be released (others still being bolted!). Among the streets not to be missed, surely Essauiria: the inclined dihedral that runs parallel to the large oblique roof, developing for 33 m; it is a 6 to + very technical in the feet.
