Camaiore is a gem hidden in the Tuscan hills, just below the limestone covered peaks nearby. Climb overlooking a small medieval village, a lush valley and majestic limestone cliffs, with the Apuan Alps behind you and the beautiful Mediterranean sea in front of you. Locacted only a 20 minute drive from Pisa and its reclining tower, 10 minutes from the beaches of Versilia, 30 minutes from the famous Cinque Terre and 40 minutes from the Chianti wineries, climbing in Camaiore is a truly unique experience. You will find thousands of routes, ranging from beautiful long and athletic tufas to scenic multi-pitches overlooking the sea. You can even check out the crazy crimps on the 9a+ Naturalmente freed by Adam Ondra in 2017, which he described as “one of the best routes I can imagine”, or challenge yourself on a big-wall adventure on the 700m-tall Pizzo d’Uccello. And the best part is that you will most probably enjoy this paradise on your own, away from the crowds.
After landing at Pisa airport, head to Camaiore village. If you want some easy mileage for your first climbing day, go to the beautiful crag of Sant’Anna di Stazzena, secluded among the hills and offering a stunning sea view. Here you can find lots of easy routes, from 3+ to some in the 6b-6c range. You can reach the crag by foot (20 minutes) from Camaiore.
