Climbing to the top plateau takes an easy and pleasant walk, rewarded at the arrival by a breathtaking panorama over the whole Apennine chain.
If you love climbing, the Pietra is the most interesting and complete practice wall in Emilia-Romagna, even if - for its geographical, morphological, and technical features - is ideal for mountaineers and hikers coming from Northern Italy. It is also a great place to practice bouldering, thanks to the several boulders scattered around the mountain. The Pietra offers exciting long trails: you will find a detailed description of the routes in the official web site of the Local Tourist Board of Castelnovo Monti www.appenninoreggiano.it , in the pages dedicated to mountain sports.
On the northern slope of the gullies of Alpe di Succiso, during the winter, it is possible to practice climbing on the frozen gullies - of course, only if you are adequately equipped and well trained.
