The slightly offshore massif of Monte Grappa, 1775 m high, forms the southern end of the Dolomites in front of the Venetian plain. Directly on its western flank runs the deeply incised Brenta Valley, which is joined by the Vizentine Alps. To the east, the Piave River separates the Grappa Massif from the southern Carnic Alps.
The climbing gardens described in this climbing guide are distributed from east to west on the Grappa massif, the Brenta canal and the Asiago plateau. A total of 16 climbing gardens found their way into the guide. Climbing is done throughout in the best limestone. The difficulties are mainly in the 6th and 7th French degrees, although aspirants for easier, as well as more difficult routes get their money's worth. However, the choice of routes is not as abundant. The areas described are purely sport climbing - there are (almost) exclusively best secured single pitches.
The presentation of each climbing garden starts with a short introduction and a description of the location, available parking, access and approach, climbing possibilities in case of rain.
The individual sectors of the areas are shown in good sketches - in addition, GPS coordinates are given for all sectors as well as the corresponding parking facilities. All walls are described in great detail via pictograms. There is information on orientation, access time, height/rope length, type of protection, climbing style, child-friendliness as well as a list of the included routes by number and grade.
For the individual routes, additional information is provided on grade, length, protection and enjoyment factor. The clarity of the topos is quite good. Superimposed on detailed sketches, they are easy to read throughout.
