  • The opening of modern climbing routes in Courtil began in 1995 by Oriana Ceretto and Marco Vacchiero, who began to nail the single pitches of the central sector and the first long route ("Legati per semper"). Starting from 1998 Tito Sachet and Michele Fardo open the single pitches of the "Bimbo Climb" sector, suitable for taking the first steps of climbing and more. Later Roberto Sgubin and others opened several long routes. The routes lend themselves to a predominantly adventurous climb. All routes and variants are marked at the base with their name.

  • Access: From the A5 exit (Pont Saint Martin or Verres) continue on the SS26 towards Bard and take the detour to Hône - Champorcher Valley. After about 7.5 km you arrive at Pontboset. Just before entering the village, turn right towards Biel / Courtil. Once in Courtil leave the car in the parking lot at the entrance to the village. You go up on foot on a path or asphalt road and, in 30 minutes, you get to Pian Fiou from where the paths to the central plaques start; in another 10 minutes you reach the left plates.
