I found some once by sheer luck. It involved going a little further South than the main cities in cinque terra, and heading to Portovenere.

I put some picture on my blog http://passivepro.blogspot.com/...label/Cinque%20Terra.

Like I mention on the blog - the walls look awesome, the rock seems fairly good, but the bolts were all chopped when I got there (minus like 1 or 2 routes). If you're in there area, its worth checking out anyway as cinque terra is overrun with tourists, but portovenere is kind of a quiet larger version. There is also a pretty cool castle out there, which Cinque Terra does not have.

This might help you...fairly close to Cinque Terre.

Google translate does a passable (somewhat entertaining) job of translating if your Italian is lacking.

I know there is quite a bit of climbing around Torino and around Lake Como, if you are up for heading out that way.

(Arrampicata is Italian for climbing -- helps with your search terms and asking around for guide books.)
