How often you lost your way when looking for a new crag? I bet that almost everyone will eventually lose their way when adventuring on a new neighborhood with poor instructions. That's what happened to us already with the failed approach to Pilastrino mirovino and after the short but intense approach we found back to Falesia delle Tecchie

Today we decided to give another try and see if we can do any better. If you won't succeed on the first time, try again. I might be illiterate but the approach to the crag is not obvious.

This time we succeeded but not without spending a lot of time wondering in the woods. And at the end approach to the crag is almost easy. Advice for the potential climbers heading up there. Use GPS just in case and try to find the small rock piles that are potentially heading to the crag, we have seen several groups trying to find it without a success.

Pilastrino mirovino is still an excellent crag for a medium level climbers with a good quality rock. Crag has total of 13 routes from 5a to 6c average being 6a+ length being around 25 meters. Types of the routes varies from slabs to vertical and overhanging, so lots of different types of routes to climb. Grading is relatively easy in Finale standards, but still not overgraded. If 6 is your target grade and you like longer routes on a good rock then Pilastrino mirovino is the crag to go.

Belayer safety first, sling to the rock.

Small holds.

Excellent views from the top.
