Long/Lat: 12.584196, 41.793474

Description:

The crag is an old (Roman?) quarry. The rock is volcanic and the routes are all between 8 and 13 metres.

For the most up to date information (in Italian) regarding the state of the routes, bolts, etc. see http://www.romaverticale.joomlafree.it/ciampinofalesia.htm

This can be useful seeing as there is an ongoing maintenance project, so some routes might be in the process of being rebolted.

Summary:
Mostly Sport

Long/Lat: 12.503990, 42.241917

Description:

The most up to date information is probably that found at http://www.lazioverticale.joomlafree.it/falesie.htm (click on 'Monte Soratte' link for list of routes and info), otherwise there are some topos at http://ilbradipomannaro.altervista.org/Le-Vie/MonteSoratte.html .

Approach:

[The crag, as well as all the paths are clearly shown in Open Street Maps.]

Park in Sant'Oreste. Follow the signs for 'Riserva Naturale del Soratte'. Once past the barrier (for cars), follow the road up to the (Santa Maria delle Grazie) Sanctuary. Take the steps up to the Sanctuary and walk along its right walls around the back and follow the path until you reach the remains of the Eremo di Sant'Antonio. Walk behind this and from the lovely outlook spot you reach, you will see a path going down away from the Eremo (in the direction of the Santuary). Follow this path to the crag.

[about 45 minutes walk, up-hill.]

Ethic:

Some of the routes are sport, others are trad, and some have a few bolts but are somewhat-trad-at-heart. They were thought out this way, so as always please climb the routes in their original, intended style without adding new bolts.

Long/Lat: 12.693608, 42.292281

Approach:

One can park right below the crag (see map). One then finds a path starting behind and to the left of the old furnace. This is a steep path with an old rope to help get up. The first sector is reached immediately, the other two by following the path at the end of the first sector through the bushes and to the right (there is white paint/markers along the path, and more rope to aid the steep ascent). Approx. 5 minutes.

1.29. Soriano - faggeta del Monte Cimino 0 routes in Crag

Unique Features And Strengths:

A beautiful wood of Beech trees with volcanic boulders.

Description:

For the layout of (some of) the boulders and a few topos see https://www.facebook.com/SorianoBoulder or http://digilander.libero.it/dsrin/Faggetabloc.htm (note, they're in Italian)

Access Issues:

The wood is a public land, but a protected area, full of history, and seeking Unesco status. Bouldering is 'tollerated' and lots of climbers visit the area, but please be extra considerate, clean and try to leave only minimal signs of having been and bouldered, as locals tend to complain.
