- Exposition: South East
- Recommended season:Winter
- Rock type:Crimps, holes, Rods and little canes, the wall is slightly overhanging, strength is necessary
- Protection:Bolts are not always close to each other
This crag is not very popular if not for locals; It is a hard crag like its sister nearby (Pilastro) where there are no friendly grades and close bolts.
Climbing here requires some strength on quite good holds and great rock. If you like to train and also train your mind properly, Fossane is the best choice.
Routes of Fossane are very logical and never boring. The route most recommended is Ladri di Stelle (star thieves). The routes were initially bolted by Ugo Mariani and Ermanno Francinelli and later rebolted with some 10 mm bolts by Francinelli, Mario Cavagnini, and Silvio Depretis.

- Approach time: 10 minutes
Reach the bar La Fermata in the Fossane area, where it’s possible to park the car. Take the same road near the bar until a crossroad, then turn right.
Follow the road uphill until it ends. Behind a yellow house, there is a path. Follow the path and, at the crossroad, retake the right.
From here, it’s possible to see parts of the crag, go straight and pay attention not to lose the path until the base of the wall.
