Rocca dei Molini (Voltaggio, AL)
On the slopes of Monte Leco, washed by the waters of the river Lemme, there is the town of Molini di Voltaggio, on the sides of the provincial road 160 which leads to the Bocchetta pass (776 masl). Set in this suggestive scenery, the cliffs enjoy the coolness of the surrounding woodland vegetation which favors their use even in the hot summer months, especially in the afternoon hours when part of the routes are in the shade. The wall can be reached in about 15 minutes from a car park at 500 m. from the town of Molini, through an easy path that can easily be walked by children and untrained people. The Rock is divided into three sectors that group around twenty streets, among which there are also routes for children or beginners.
