Rock climbing walls

The Campo dei Fiori crag is an open-air gym for all lovers of sports and alpine climbing.

The rock climbing walls of Mount Campo dei Fiori has unique characteristics among the rock climbing wallss of Lombardy and the neighbouring regions. It is enclosed in a typically mountain environment at above one thousand metres of altitude and is almost entirely facing north.

The Climbing walls of Campo dei Fiori was born thanks to the passion of many mountaineers from Varese area who have frequented this place for years. . It occupies a wide summit area of Mount Campo dei Fiori, with rocky, limestone outcrops reaching a maximum height of about 120 metres and extending linearly for a few hundred metres in an ideal natural environment for the mountaineering practice.

Nowadays, the Walls has undergone a remarkable modernisation both as to the pegging of the climbing routes and as to the laying out of the trails linking the various sectors. This important work, carried out by specialized technicians, makes this extraordinary climbing environment more secure and enjoyable.

ACCESS: 
From Varese follow for Fogliano and S.Ambrogio, from here follow for Campo dei fiori. Follow the winding road. Arriving under an imposing group of repeaters, park in a square in front of a hotel restaurant (pensione Irma).  If there is an overcrowding park as best you can without blocking the way.
From the pensione, turn back and take the path climbing to the right along a fence. Then follow the tarmac road to the heliport. The various sectors are reached by descending the various channels below.
