Cariera

All you need to know…

Info “Cariera” (The Quarry), also known as the Feregari Gorge, is situated near Herculane’s bypass road. The first classic routes were put up in the 60’s. In the 80’s, the first sport climbing routes appeared, mainly on pegs. In 2011, for the 10th HCO edition, new routes were bolted and over 40 routes were rebolted making this sector popular once again.
Access  Take the road that goes around the town just above the football field. You will leave your car at a small Gypsy settlement or in front of a guesthouse, take the path straight through the Gypsy settlement, and, after passing the cottages, you will arrive at a spring with good water. From the spring, follow the the path further up the small dry valley and you will reach the gorges.
Approach Walk-time 15-25 min.
Sun The sector is on both sides of the gorge so you can enjoy both sun and shade all day long.
Rain Routes get wet.
Water Water spring on the way to the crag.
Family Not the best but could be ok.

A classic, probably the most repeated multipitch in Herculane. First pitch starts with a 12m a dihedral with a crack, then keep al little bit to the right and follow the pitons. Second pitch starts left of the belay point(a pine) and consists of easy climbing following the piton line, slightly to the right, until ou reach the ledge with the belay point. Third pitch starts with a crack around 5c, keep a little bit to the right until you reach the big pine, used as belay point. Forth pitch starts left of the belay, up a vertical crack, around 5c and climbs to the top of the wall. Rappel on the other side of the wall, use the pines as belay points, a 50m rope is enough.
