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. Only 20’ drive from Pisa and its reclining tower, 10’ from the beaches of Versilia, 30’ from the famous Cinque Terre and 40’ 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 of the 9a+ Naturalmente freed by Adam Ondra in 2017, that 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 be most probably enjoying this paradise on your own, away from the crowd.
After landing at Pisa airport, get to Camaiore village. For your first climbing day, if you want a warm-up, go to the beautiful crag of Sant’Anna di Stazzena, secluded among the hills with sea view. Here you can find lots of easy grades, from 3+ to some 6b-6c range. You can reach it with a nice 20’ walk from Camaiore.
