Lumignano Climbing Area Vicenza, Italy

Arrampicata Italia - Falesia Lumignano

The largest and best developed climbing area in the Vicenza Province is Lumignano, it is located above the town of Lumignano, a small village south of Vicenza, in the Berici Hills. The numerous cliffs in the valley have been a major climbing destination since the early 1970's. At one time Lumignano hosted some of the hardest climbs in Italy and routes such as Orient Express, Atomic Cafe, and Arco d'Ora were top·projects on a lot of climbers tick list. Today with so many sites throughout Europe and the expansion of the difficulty rating Lumignano no longer hosts the hardest routes, but many individuals are surprised at the stiffness of the grades that are in the older sectors. The Lumignano climbing area offers a wide variety of climbs for all level of climbers.

Lumignano Rock Climbing area

I first climbed in Lumignano in 1986 and found the routes to be challenging, the rock top quality, and the village of Lumignano a quite county village. Since that first experience the area has changed, the village has become a community of new subdivisions, there are lots of new sectors to climb, and the rock is very polished on many of the popular routes. However, the area still has a special appeal, the rating for the climbs have not changed and seem stiff compared to other sites in Europe. You can no longer climb in mid day in July or August and expect to find a good grip and rock texture, and it is a bit more crowded in the town and surrounding area. However, there are still great routes to climb and knowing which sector to be at based on the season and time of day, will help you get the most out of your climbing.  There is plenty to explore in the Veneto Region after climbing and great food and wine to keep you energized to climb.
