There’s a new playground for climbers: the Rio Gere crag.
The first routes on this enormous outcrop were bolted in the early 1990s by Diego Ghedina, known as “Tomasc”, from the Scoiattoli group, who realised the potential of this new climbing site in the Ampezzo area.
Diego soon abandoned this project, however, as he had discovered another irresistible face: the “Crepe de Oucera bassi”, which he studied and equipped from start to finish with unwavering and devoted passion.
Many years have passed since then, but recently two tireless climbers decided to give the area another shot: our experts Mox (Massimo Da Pozzo) and Bruno Sartorelli sorted out Tomasc’s original routes. The two Scoiattoli climbers also opened up numerous new routes, mainly long overhanging lines (up to 40 m).
Thanks to them, Cortina now has another stunning climbing wall to train on, the Rio Gere crag!
