Climbing fun on the red rocks of Ritten Porphyry
here are two small rock climbing parks on the sunny plateau:
One in Monte di Mezzo and one in Auna di Sotto.
In Monte di Mezzo you can park your car at the inn Egartner. After a 30-minute walk you will reach the porphyry climbing territory. This wall allows for intense climbing training, ideal for crack climbing, slab climbing, and crimp climbing. The numerous routes, though excellently secured, are very demanding - not ideal for beginners.
In Monte di Mezzo, climbing is best enjoyed in spring and autumn, as the southeast-facing rock gets really hot.
Since 2010, Renon also has a porphyry rock climbing park near Auna di Sotto, boasting 50 routes. Here crimps and cracks are complemented by pockets, rather untypical for porphyry. Because the rock faces south, this rock climbing park is also a great place to be in the winter.
