Today the Finale area is one of the international paradises for this discipline. The very particular limestone rock, characterised by “drip” holes and holds, makes the destination one of the most technically interesting in the world. The “Finalese” slab is becoming an obligatory route for the greatest climbers in the world.
In addition to the rock, considered one of the most beautiful of all, Finale differs from other climbing destinations for being a paradise by the sea. The union of sea and cliff has represented Finale’s strong point over the years. Today, there are over 3000 climbing routes, impressively well-equipped in true sporting style. Some cliffs, however, remain more “mountaineering” in character, for lovers of the original way of doing things. Here too, Finale has the merit of being able to offer itineraries for both climbing preferences.
