I Sasedei, small stones scattered in the woods by some elves, until a few years ago covered by beautiful ivy, now have been recently equipped and re-evaluated for the sport of climbing.
This cliff, formed a few metres away from the ruins of Castel Belfort, has all the characteristics of a perfect place for beginners to climb and at the same time is a delightful balcony over the wonderful woods of the Brenta Mountains.
It is easily accessible along a path which follows the base of the cliff face, it is an ideal place for those who don't want to put too much effort in, for lovers of relaxing climbs with only a little exertion required. A grey calcareous wall for learning secret moves, basic techniques, without going over the top!
The small green area, tables and benches at the foot of the climbing wall invite you to have picnics with friends, to bring the whole family along to have a game of “tug of war” or even a barbecue!
The wall is not very high, maximum 15/20 metres, and is suitable for climbing during summer, or spring-autumn in the afternoon when it is touched by the sun, but not after heavy rainfall.
....... turn your back to the gently sloping rock, never-ending woods lead towards the heart of Brenta, and as with all respected mountain villages, legend says that the few bears remaining wander around this labyrinth of leaves, larches and pine-woods! It has to be seen to be believed, and if you meet some strange person or animal, don't worry, four agile jumps on the Sasedei rock and you will be safe from anything, apart from yourself!
Access: from the village of Spormaggiore please follow the Provincial road until you meet a large waiting area on the right just after an isolated house. Park here and follow the sign for “palestra di roccia”; little more than a 10 minute light downhill walk before you arrive at “I Sasedei”.
