DESCRIPTION
The sunny Calisio climbing garden above the village of Martignano has two vertical sections of excellent yellow and grey limestone featuring notches and holes. The routes have recently been newly bolted and demand a good level of resistance and technique. All the routes are extremely interesting, especially "La Pienezza del Nulla" (fantastic 7b), "aurora" (6c), "percorsi arroganti" (6c) and "attenti al gorilla" (7a+). The base of the wall is very convenient although the highly exposed access is deceiving. The approach requires careful use of the lengths of rope, which help you move along the escarpment.

PERIOD RECOMMENDED
The south-westerly exposure of the climbing garden makes it suitable for use practically only in winter, late autumn or early spring. Not to be climbed during summer or hot weather.

GETTING TO THE CLIMBING GARDEN
From Martignano drive to Montevaccino (5 km). Take the narrow road through the hamlet and follow the SAT signs for "Campel" and "Villamontagna". After climbing a tarmacked ramp, continue along the flat dirt track (continue to follow the same signs) until you reach the car park for the former Rifugio Calisio (barrier, entry not allowed) where you can leave your vehicle.
From the car park, continue on foot along the dirt track towards "Villamontagna", "Campel" for 20 or 30 metres. Immediately after a water catchment (on the left), turn down the small path descending on the right. After about 20m, the path makes a sharp bend to the left then descends steeply. Follow the lengths of rope, which will help you move over the steep ramp, then keep to the left until the climbing garden comes into sight.
