MAIOLO BOULDERING AREA | EMILIA ROMAGNA

Maiolo Bouldering Site

 Fortress of San Leo

The Maiolo bouldering area is a small group of sandstone bloc's that sit in the hills southwest of the Republic of San Marino, in the Emilia Romagna Region. The boulder problems are marked by name, and most are single problems with one obvious solution, not eliminators. The landing area is safe, but in the warmer months the site tends to get overgrown, so keep an eye out for snakes and ticks.  There are 50 blocs listed by the locals but during my visit I found almost 20 good sized blocs with solid problems. The rest of the blocs are small and "if I have nothing better to climb" type of blocs. If you are visiting the Republic of San Marino or Rimini, and like to do a few problems, Maiolo Bouldering area is worth the visit. As well if you passing near Rimini and need a rest stop this is a great visit off the main tourist trek with lots of extras to visit.

GETTING TO THE MAIOLO BOULDERING AREA

The town to head toward is Rimini.  Then link up with the A-14 autostrada section running between Bologna and Rimini.  You will want to take the Nord Rimini exit and follow SP-49 south to San Martino di Mulini.  From here turn south on SS- 249 (also marked as SP-14 in some sections) to the town of Ca' di Vento.  Just after Ca di Vento turn following the signs to Maiolo (SP Montefeltrese) passing through the small community of Maiolo and then turning left to Boscara.  You will park at the intersection of via Poggio and walk to the bouldering site.
