Product information "climbing guidebook Presolana"

Behind Bergamo, the Brembana Valley, the Seriana Valley and the distant Scalve Valley deeply affect the pre-Alpine reliefs that rise from the plain until they end against the Orobie chain. Mountains and valleys gathered in the wide embrace formed by the Larian lake and the deep furrows of Valtellina and Valle Camonica.
The Bergamo Prealps and the Orobic Alps offer themselves naked, on clear winter days or after summer storms, to those traveling along the motorway between Brescia and Milan, perhaps heading towards more distant mountaineering destinations.
Among these valleys there is a varied environmental heritage of unexpected beauty, among which stand out peaks and walls on whose rocks interesting pages of mountaineering history have been written. The undisputed queen of the entire chain is the Presolana, not a simple mountain, but an articulated and complex massif, a long bastion that rises between the Seriana Valley and the Scalve Valley, whose profile, marked by the succession of its five peaks , is easily recognizable from every perspective you look at it. We dedicate a true monograph to its lunar limestone walls, its over 250 routes and its rich mountaineering history, in which you will find not only the technical reports, accompanied by clear and precise routes and drawings, but also the stories of the first climbers and repeaters as well as the reproduction of precious historical archive materials, all enriched by numerous photographs to complete the story of the Queen of the Orobie.
The book is published only in Italian.
