Vista della parete del Droide - gulliver.it Vista della parete del Droide

  • ... spring of 2006 Sometimes you go to a place and you look through the trees to discover some beautiful wall, but in particular I always try to see a floor or a grass at the base ... we now have a certain age and we want our comforts. The rocks of the Droid are not visible but you can see a dihedral apparently a bit 'rotten, but the base is flat, and then it's in the sun, "what do you say Tiz ... let's see?" Are two steps, ten minutes and we're there ... maybe fifteen goes ... it was an unexpected stroke of luck. Once arrived on the ledge we remain open-mouthed, corners alternate with dihedrals and in the middle with roofs, cracks everywhere ... It is really a concentrate of climbing styles typical of granite, but collected in a front of about fifty linear meters. The cliff has the shape of an "accordion" and for this reason has the peculiarity of showing some faces in the sun and leaving others in the shade, so that the orientation to the south can be chosen before the difficulty of shooting, the temperature of the rock and consequently adherence. Of course at first glance we were a bit 'disconcerted by the cleaning work that required, but as always the important thing is to start and so one line behind the other we made the wall accessible. Chiodata a spit because in our opinion is a cliff and as such must be propaedeutic to those who approach the practice of climbing trad. Certainly many of our friends will have to complain about this concept, but I have noticed over the years that many roped appreciated the fact of being able to maybe try the first shot on the bolts and later with the friends. But we have also made a gift to the "fundamentalists of the trad" by snapping the two slots "sisters". The name given "a hook for two sisters" arose from the fact that at the opening we used a single spit valid for both shots at about half height, and later we decided to nail them in full. Given the various agitations on the forums, we acted accordingly by giving a shot to the circle and one to the barrel, snapping them to please everyone. Naturally all the other "opinionists" of the spit were unleashed at all costs, but we had already acted. To say that I have noticed over the years that exist and work the breakaway and instead lacks the "restore" ... Abundant are instead the speakers, a bit 'as in Italian politics (the minuscule!).

  • Access: at the exit of the Ceresole Reale tunnel, after 500 meters on the right there is a ruined, burned out house. The trail starts from here, and many little men will guide you in 15 min to the base of the streets.
