In this third edition, only dedicated to the crags, Davide Mazzucchelli (author of the previous edition) works together with Matteo Della Bordella, who knows Switzerland very well and is already the author of “Arrampicare in Svizzera“.

The book, expanded and updated, suggests a big selection of crags in the Canton Ticino area, which offers many interesting crags either for the variety of climbing or for the mild weather conditions.

A comprehensive chapter about the crags in the province of Varese completes the volume, with some in-depth analysis on the principal characters or stories telling the history of climbing in this area.

Coming soon another volume all about the multi-pitch routes.

Even in this guidebook you’ll find:

1 – in-depth interviews with some of the most significant personalities

2 – QR codes with GPS coordinates, which can be used with any smartphone and easily lead you to the car parks below all the crags
