About SassoFortino:

A great bouldering area, being developed over the last two or three years. From V0 to V11/12, but there are plentry of projects. The bouldering is Volcanic Riolite and super sweet slopers and great rounded crimps, as well as big volcanic holes. A selection of 20+ sport climbs as well from 6a/b to 8a. Find a Tuscan local climber and get a tour, otherwise you'll never get the value of the area, its concentrated but spread out on all sides of a mountain. Lots of 6a (Font scale) through 7b

Directions: Between Siena and Grosseto, exit Superstrada 223 At Civitella and drive toward Roccastrada then towards Sassofortino.
