Long route climbing in more detail
The concept is simple: when the height of the cliff exceeds the length of the rope (40 to 50m), it is called a “long route”, requiring multiple pitches. This makes it possible to climb cliffs of several hundred metres using intermediate belays.
Our offering includes several equipped long routes of around 130m, made in 4 to 5 pitches, at different levels of difficulty. We descend abseiling. You can choose to lead the route or let your guide lead and stay in 2nd.
Climbing in the forest of Bonifatu, a heritage-protected wilderness.
Located in the heart of the Corsican Natural Regional Park, the forest of Bonifatu is a fantastic playground for mountain activities, though it remains a fragile environment. Indeed, Balagne’s famous high winds (like the Libecciu) increase the risk of forest fires in this wild area, and so access may sometimes be prohibited.
At the confluence of two rivers, the Figarella and the Melaghia, this richly biodiverse area offers a great range of activities for nature-lovers, including short and long treks (access to the Carrozzu and Ortu di u Piobbu shelters of the GR20 route), canyoning in the Melaghia, climbing along the river and long route climbing! These high cliffs (100 to 140m) offer a nice variety of routes and breathtaking views of the Figarella Valley and the surrounding mountain peaks, reaching over 2300m altitude.
