Grotti – no, not a verdict, but a crag near Rome

Grotti is a small village about 100 km north of Rome. A mixture of conglomerate and pockety limestone, the climbing bears similarly to Buoux and Margalef  (according to reports on the interweb). Praise indeed so we decided to take a look.

…and it turns out that both comparisons are fair, though it hasn’t got the scale and architecture of Buoux, there are certainly plenty of pockets. Unfortunately, Grotti also suffers from some of the polish and sandbaggy grades of its more famous cousins too.

Plenty of locals out, enjoying the sunshine.

…and some great holds 🙂
