Chironico's Images

Ticino, Switzerland
Description: A giant bouldering area situated outside the Swiss town of Chironico. It is similar to Cresiano in style, with lots of steep routes all on granite. Nice landings and trails to access boulders but even in prime season the area does not get too crowded. At a similar elevation to Cresciano it is a better winter fall/winter/spring destination (if you are in Switzerland in the summer head for Magic Wood).   History: Dave Graham has put up 18 problems 8a and harder, including From Dirt Grows the Flowers (8c) and Collateral (8b+). Fred Nicole has also played a key role in the devolopment of the area.
Camping: Camping along the road to the boulders but keep a low profile. There is lots of space, but not water or amenities. Town is a five-minute walk and has free water. From the camping/parking walk away from town for about 5 minutes on a dirt road.
