The area of Foresto characterized by a fine limestone, is known to climbers, for at least thirty years, since Mr. Cech opened a 120-meter street on the east wall of the Orrido, which soon became famous as the wall was overhanging, "the Oblique fissure". In the years that followed many routes were traced on the walls of the Orrido, especially by the Wild Mucchio, a group of young and strong Turinese mountaineers who, going against the trend of the alpine habits of the period, preferred difficult walls and problems. technicians at the great heights. Following the evolution of sport climbing has brought a new wind and have equipped a large number of routes on all the walls, even the smaller ones, in the area. Today the district is one of the most important climbing centers in Piedmont with several single-wall cliffs and walls up to 200 m. of height.
