LOMBARDY REGION ROCK CLIMBING GUIDE

Rock Climbing Italy. Lombardy Val Mello

Three distinct natural zones can be fairly easily distinguished in the Lombardy region: mountain, hill and plain. The first is an alpine zone including the Lepontine and Rhaetian Alps (Piz Bernina, 4 055 m.), the Orobic Alps, the Ortles and Adamello massifs; a pre-alpine zone, its main peaks being the Grigne Group (2,410 m.), Resegone (1,875 m.) and Presolana (2,521 m.). The great Lombard lakes, all of glacial origins, lie in this zone.

The Lombardy mountains have many tourist resorts offering an ample choice of excursions, mountaineering and winter sports. Worthy of mention are Madesimo at the foot of the Spluga Pass (Italy-Switzerland); Livigno, a duty-free zone beyond the watershed; Bormio, at the foot of the Stelvio (summer skiing); Santa Caterina Valfurva, below the Ortles Massif; Ponte di Legno and the Tonale Pass (summer skiing on the Presanella glaciers), Chiesa in Valmalenco, within sight of the Bernina Massif; Foppolo in the upper Val Brembana. Last but not least, in Valcamonica, of particular interest are the rock carvings made by the Camunis (ancient inhabitants of Valcamonica-7 000-3 000 BC.): the area round Capo di Ponte constitutes the Parco Nazionale delle Incisioni Rupestri (rock carvings).
