A unique cliff with a somewhat bleak,yet spectacular appearance. It is located on the right side of the mountain “Punta dell’Orto” in Covelo, at the outskirts of Iseo. The lower section is composed of a low wall of limestone blocks where unstable parts have been removed (difficulty 5c-6b).
The upper part instead consists of an enormous cave (grottone) that has been properly fix-bolted, ideal for sultry summer days, where itineraries of remarkable difficulty have been marked out and carved out of the rock. (5c-8b).
Lower sector: from 5c to 6b
Upper sector: from 5c to 8b
- Weather: SW exposure and 200 m. a.s.l.
Lower sector: rock is not ideal in Summer;
Upper sector: can be climbed even in the rain and is ideal on sultry summer days.
- Access and parking: Brescia-Darfo Provincial Road 510, Iseo exit, drive down to the lake (remarkable panorama) and once you reach the intersection with the coastal road, you can see the cavern by looking up to the right of Covelo’s roundabout. Park under the cliff, where there is Covelo’s roundabout, just a few steps away from the lower sector and 10 minutes from the upper one.
