No minimum level is required for this trip, since Liguria boasts crags of all levels and the instructor is a fully certified mountain guide. As for the maximim level... well everyone can benefit from some rock climbing training! Even Adam Ondra is looking for a 9c+ :)



Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. For any inaccuracies, however, we can not accept any 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 and skills not to go outdoor alone.
