The developments of climbing areas and mountain bike trails have exploded the tourism to this little town on the north Italian coast between Genova and Savona. In the surrounding areas of Finale Ligure there is more rock climbing than one can explore during a large number of holidays.
In Finale, the there are over a hundred “old-school” climbing sectors on vertical limestone looking like Swiss cheeses. Another hundred, well bolted crags with acrobatic climbs on tufas and overhangs, have recently been developed by the new generation of sport climbers in the neighbor valleys.
Finale Ligure has beautiful beaches and a pleasant shopping street. The central point of reference is however Finalborgo, the charming old castle. Here climbing days start with an Italian coffee at Bar Centrale and finish with a traditional meal at the Spaghetteria, followed by amazing ice creams.
It is possible to focus a course around both single and multi-pitch climbing, although the single-pitches offers much more possibilities, especially for larger groups.
We recommend accommodation in apartments, hotels or camping.
Rest days from climbing can be spent on the beach, mountain biking or just eating pizza and ice cream…
