Approach

There are two places you can park, either in or around Davare, or ar Ronch. Both approaches are very short, 5min by foot. Start by driving to Digonera on the SP563, then just south of Digonera, turn off onto a road to Laste ignoring the turnoff to Laste di Sotto. Once you reach the main village, either turn left to Ronch or continue through the village towards Davare. The parking at Ronch is more limited so on a busy weekend, it’s best to go to Davare.

From Ronch take a small path northwards to reach the main crag. It climbs a wooded hillside steeply behind some old houses and barns to reach the crag within 5 minutes.

From Davare, continue up the wide motorable track until you see a footpath sign to Ronch. This easy path contours across the hill through woods to reach the other side of the crag within 5 minutes.
