DESCRIPTION
The Breguzzo climbing area features overhanging pitches requiring resistance and strength. The rock is composed of highly compact limestone with a particularly elaborate face featuring holes, pipes and fingernail edges.
The place was once covered with a wild, overgrown and highly suggestive wood. Recent intervention to "render boulders safe" has unfortunately ruined the setting which today sadly does not have the charm it once had.
The best routes are: "Polentì" (7c), "Sechi" (7b), "Struz" (7c), "Perobale" (6c absolutely beautiful) and "Pagnate" (7c+). There is a fountain in the village of Breguzzo; turn right into "Via Rocca" and it's about 200m down the road.

PERIOD RECOMMENDED
The best period for Breguzzo (oriented eastwards) is spring and autumn; summer afternoons are also good when there is a breeze. The routes in the middle can be climbed even if it is raining. After long spells of rain however the water filters through the ground and makes the climbing garden impracticable.

GETTING TO THE CLIMBING GARDEN
Take the SS237 "del Caffaro" from Tione as far as Breguzzo. On entering Breguzzo (from the north), turn right into the steep tarmacked minor road near the church (Via Rocca). The car park is situated about 1.5km ahead on the right, just before the power station.
The track, which takes you to the climbing garden in about 10 minutes, is about 50m below the car park.
