Below we propose the best known and most popular slopes with data updated to October 2013

The times, which are very indicative, refer to a group of 3-4 people. Beauty with an increasing scale from 1 to 7. The anchors are in all cases more than sufficient. Let us remember that they are all torrential gorges with periods of almost dryness and periods of prohibitive floods. With summer storms rapid increase in flow rate in a short time so make sure of the volume of water (at the downstream outlet) and always check the weather. Cellular coverage 35/100 – Emergency 112/118.

CAMOGGIE – Pigra – Colonno Definitely technical, with exposed handrails and high abseils 65 (45+20) and 110 (55+55), excellent view of Lake Como. Very interesting approach with the Pigra cable car which reduces the approach times to 2 km shuttle and 15 min. standing. Southern exposure.

LIRONE – Claino – Osteno Pearl in the Moltrasio limestone. Very well-informed and fun with dives, notable toboggans. Pay attention to the flow rate of the bottleneck after the SX hydro confluence. The next pit with cave-in holds enough. Initially simple but with a great finish. North-east exposure.

USEFUL INFORMATION – Canyoning, or canyoning, consists of descending on foot water courses that flow inside narrow gorges deeply carved into the rock and characterized by reduced flow and steep slopes. Canyoning is experiencing the thrill of adventure in a wild environment, the fun of swimming, diving and sliding inside beautiful canyons smoothed by the water. In our area the torrents have dug deep ravines over the centuries, perfect for this potentially dangerous activity. It is not an individual sport, but a group one. The amount of material needed for the descent and safety issues recommend avoiding groups of fewer than 4 people. Preferred qualities are good resistance to prolonged efforts and good swimming and climbing skills.

NOTICE SUMMER 2020: the CANYONING A KM ZERO structure does not foresee excursions for this summer.
