DAY 4

Time to go home

The weekend has been lit, you learnt a lot and it is already time to go back home, but only after a last delicious breakfast at the hut!

The program is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, climbing level, and endurance of the group

Camaiore, Italy

Get the most out of Mapo Tapo Camaiore performance climbing experience!

Camaiore is a gem hidden in the Tuscan hills, just below the limestone covered peaks nearby. A small medieval village, a lush valley, majestic limestone cliffs, the Apuan Alps behind you, and the beautiful Mediterranean sea in front of you.
There is a lot to be explored: countless routes of any grades (from easy 4th to 9a+) and incredible scenery - and yes, from most crags you can see the sea! For strong climbers, the crown jewel of Camaiore is San Rocchino crag. Gorgeous and unforgiving: Adam Ondra had to come back twice to close the 9a+ Naturalmente.

Liability

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. We can for any inaccuracies, however, accept no liability. Rock climbing is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge not to go outdoor alone.

Reviews

Beyond the amazing scenery and climbing, I met the most incredible people. Everyone was warm, welcoming, and most importantly stoked on climbing! Nights at the hostel were filled with games, dancing, and way too much laughing :)

I loved the whole experience: from climbing with a group of like minded people, to having the best in class guides, to sleeping in the most local place and enjoying delicious Tuscanian food. Thanks Mapo Tapo for giving me the chance to improve my technique and make new climbing friends! 🤙🏻
