Lake Maggiore Boulder Area
To get to Foppiano, you travel up incredibly beautiful mountain roads. This gem of an area is made of a plethora of granite boulders surrounded by forest (much like Fontainebleau but granite – which some people prefer) and consists of varied routes. There is a nice mix of boulder styles including some overhangs, fun traverses, cracks, straight routes and slabs. Some of the best problems have big features like a platform to throw a heel over, or a thin shard to climb up. There are a good range of climbs for people who can climb a V2 and above. The area is well equipped with a toilet and a local restaurant/ pub within walking distance and is easily accessible from the car park. There are so many routes with every turn a new problem to try, you will not want to leave!
