• La Baiarda, or rather the complex of Mount Pietralunga and the bastion of the Baiardetta, is the most classic and historic alpine area of ​​the Genoese. On these walls have been trained generations of climbers, until the flourishing of the climbers of Finale, who relegated them to land for lovers of mountain climbing and perfect home for mountaineering courses. After a rather thorough break, in the 90s there was a brief return thanks to the contribution of the 'Lord of the Baiarda', Mauro De Cesare. It began to talk about this mountain group, outside the CAI circuit, only three decades later, in the book 'The Altimeter marks Zero', which contains the major Ligurian climbs from the 2nd to the 6th. After many decades of staticism, today a new way is born in 'Baiarda', the most logical continuation of the most classic of combinations. 'Donkeys in the Night' is a line of 50 m that deals exactly on its most pronounced profile the summit tower that constitutes the summit of reference of the complex. You can climb directly this new ascension or chain it on the drop line with the beautiful 'Via dei Camini' as recommended here. (For the route name see the book 'Lacrime nella Pioggia'). ''

  • Access: Via the Genoa-Ventimiglia A10 motorway, the Voltri tollgate is reached. Continue to the right on the SS1 coastal road towards the village. You soon meet a crossroads: take a right uphill for the Turchino. Continue on a winding road that turns left and then continues on the right along the river Leiro in the direction of Mele. Arrived just before the small village, turn right uphill to Acquasanta. You proceed on a narrow road until you reach the small cluster. Turn right onto a bridge and immediately reach the white sanctuary on your left and continue right towards the station. We then come to the junction that would lead to the station but we leave it continuing to the right, uphill, up to a small hill where you park in one of the two micro dirt areas, without hindering the circulation of cars, the pipeline or the path! On the left you notice a white sign indicating the paths.
