Rock climbing enthusiasts in Valle Maira can switch from the old itineraries on the Castello-Provenzale group, to the more modern and demanding routes of Rocca La Meja or the little-known Rocca Gialeo in the Pelvo d'Elva group. Much more can however be experimented in a still virgin territory that offers numerous opportunities for those who wish to let loose their imagination and draw their own new routes.
Ideal gyms to organise rock climbing courses or stretch your muscles can be found on Monte Russet in Chiappera, the Perun d'Perin in Acceglio and the Palestra del Pilone in Preit di Canosio; if you wish to rock climb out of season, just go down to the gym in Camoglieres or on the Rocca del Castlass di Roccabruna, in a panoramic position overlooking the plain of Cuneo.
The Via Ferrata di Camoglieres is beautiful and enjoyable, with big cliffs and suspension bridge over the void; or the more mountaineering Via Ferrata del Monte Oronaye, rich in history having been built by the Italian Alpine troopers in the Second World War and now restored, maintaining the fascination and splendour of the past.
