This topo collects the six crags equipped on the rocky belt of mount Casale. From south to north: Sisyphos, Athos, Sarche, Muro dei meridiani, Panoramica and Il posto delle fragole.
Sisyphos is a nice grey vertical wall offering over 40 routes from 5a to 7c. The pitches are about 20 meters long and mainly technical with crimpers and small pockets. The area is quiet and comfortable and the equipment is good.
6a+ to 7c routes and a lot of projects on a vertical limestone wall, this is the curriculum of Athos. The crag is rarely frequented but has a good potential. The base is ok and also the equipment is fine. The approach is not so children friendly cause there are some fixed ropes that must be used while following the trail. All the projects can be tried without problems.
Sarche is composed of three small sector, having in common a nice grey and compact limestone. The routes are mainly vertical and technical and goes from 5c to 7b.
The crag is rarely frequented, but the routes are nice.
Note: the Sarche topo has three pictures, the first shows the northernmost sector while the last the southernmost one.
Muro dei meridiani:
This crag offers 7 short multi-pitch routes on a nice grey-red rock. All the lines are nice and requires only 60 meters ropes and quickdraws. For the routes on the right it is recommended to be experienced on alpinistic routes. You have to rappel down from routes 1 to 4, while to come back from the others it is possible to top out and follow an evident path indicated by stone pillars.
Panoramica has a nice yellow wall, which is mainly vertical and offers long routes from 6a to 7b. All the lines are nice and well bolted.
The crag base is ok, but the approach could be not so easy for children. Pay attention to the extreme right part of the base, cause it is very exposed.
The landscape is breathtaking over the Sarca valley and Toblino lake. For this reason the routes names were given by taking inspiration from the world of photography.
Il posto delle fragole:
Il posto delle fragole is a grey vertical wall with nice routes around sixth grade. All of them are well equipped.
The crag base is on a ledge, so pay attention.
Il posto delle fragole is strangely little frequented, even though the few routes are nice and the landscape is beautiful.
