Mountaineering Rock climbing

Cassin route at Pizzo Badile

The Cassin on the north-east face of Badile is, perhaps, the most significant classic rock route in the central Alps

On this itinerary you feel small, very small, surrounded by a large sea of ​​granite slabs.

Lightness of mind, light equipment and speed are the keys to having fun on this legendary itinerary which has around 22 pitches, grade III to VI.

The satisfaction on top is unspeakable and finally, up there, you can relax, the descent towards Gianetti will not be a problem... 

Write to me to plan togehter this unforgettable climb!
