Falesia di Gudo
The cliffs are easily accessible and are located in a sunny area (from 09.30 to 16.30 even on the shortest days of the year) which makes them particularly noticeable in winter as in the middle seasons. The rock, although not among the best in the Canton, offers very varied and never banal ways. Climbing takes place on slightly resting slabs and vertical walls as well as on slight overhangs, sometimes very challenging. The Gudo crags are characterized by three different sectors that include about 35 climbing routes with difficulties for all tastes, from the 4th to the 7th degree. The first cliff, the one at the top is PANORAMIX, a medium-sized structure that houses 13 single pitches. The small central cliff, BELLA BIONDA, hosts 4 relatively single and relatively beautiful short single pitches. The CANYON is the third structure, the lower one but also the richest and most varied and offers 18 single pitches. Sunset on the PANORAMIX sector

Once the car is parked, head to Locarno (W) on the hairpin bend (parking spot 1) on a path initially not very visible, then marked with white and red arrows.
