In the hinterland of Albenga and Toirano an area has been created for free climbs that is second only to Finale

The world of free climbing doesn’t end at Finale, but goes “Oltre” (beyond), with a nice play on words. In Val Pennavaire there are limestone rock walls that are reminiscent of those of the Dolomites, with yellow-reddish tones that mix with grey. Along the valley there are plenty of opportunities to stay at delightful B&B’s or to taste the local cuisine: here edible boletus is popular.

In Val Varatella behind the Toirano Caves there is another noteworthy area: solid rock and walls exposed to the sun also to be frequented in winter. In the bars in the area, you find guides to the cliffs.
