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!
You can still decide to stay in the area, either for another day of climbing, putting to good use the experiences learnt, or to visit the surrounding area: the beaches of Versilia, the surrounding art cities, the Cinque Terre and much more.

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 Tuscany performance climbing experience!

Camaiore is a hidden gem in the Tuscan hills: in its vicinity many limestone crags that offer various styles of climbing. There are countless routes of all grades (from 4a to 9a+) and incredible scenery and yes, from most of the crags you can see the sea! For strong climbers, the top crag is San Rocchino. Splendid and unforgiving: Adam Ondra had to return twice to complete the 9a+ NaturalmenteCamaiore is an ancient medieval town, just seven kilometres from the wide sandy beaches of Versilia. It is located in a lush valley, with the Apuan Alps behind it, which have peaks up to 2,000 metres high. A few dozen kilometres away, famous cities art cities such as Pisa, Lucca and Florence and natural beauties such as the Cinque Terre.

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 :)

Connie W

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! 🤙🏻
