A small selection of easy climbs from La Plana in Val Daone. This is a fantastic spot for bouldering set in the woods with around fifty granite boulders to explore. Slabs, overhangs and verticals are all represented with a range of styles and grades to satisfy most tastes. The rock has a fantastic texture with enough grip for smearing and confident feet but without the sand paper effect that removes fingerprints.
The first adventure for the Bouldering Adventure Team (BAT, great acronym!) started earlier than expected with a text message from our airline, letting us know that our flight had been cancelled. That was on the 5th of May 2018, the day of our outbound flight, and it took a while to realize that the airline was talking about our return flight. Confusion and panic faded away and were replaced by stress to coordinate our return flight between all team members.
But we managed to get that sorted. A 1h and 30min delayed flight later we arrived in Milan, where we were picked up by our transfer driver. He drove like he wanted to make up for the delay. Probably the most adventurous part of the weekend! But I digress. After picking up Louis Parkinson and another person at two other airports we managed to get to the hotel by 2am. 6 hours of quality sleep later our adventure could begin!
