The Sasso di Remenno is the largest rock in Europe, with a volume of over half a million cubic meters. There are numerous traces and its granite is crossed by generally horizontal erosions, which allow a climbing of support on more or less sharp notches. Artificially cleats, holes and flared hooks were created on the smoothest and most unsightly overhanging streets that allow progression. Climbing becomes more athletic, of power and pure strength, with short and intense muscular effort and bouldering passages that are difficult to resolve "on sight". The most frequented wall is the South, where there are a large number of medium-easy routes, from 4a to 6b.The West side is particularly suited to move the first steps on the rock, with tracks that start from 2c. The north and north-east walls are the most difficult and fun, with overhanging and some artificial routes, which reach grade 8c, the first ever declared in Italy.
Access: From the village of Ardenno (7.5 km after Morbegno towards Sondrio) follow the road 404 on the left that leads to Val Masino, after a concrete bridge with arches. After Cataeggio and reached Filorera, a treacherous curve leads into a wide plateau on whose left the huge mass of the Sasso, which is located after 300 meters, is clearly visible. There are paid parking spaces at the foot of the boulder or with a 3 hour hourly drive immediately after. Accessible and comfortable even for campers.
