The Rocche del Reopasso are a sequence of rather singular rocky elevations, belonging to the formation of the Savignone Conglomerates, included in the protection of the Regional Park of Monte Antola and a site of Community importance for its particular natural habitats.
A place of great scenic interest and with a certain material history because it is located within the properties of the Fieschi family and in any case in Upper Scrivia Valley, a privileged holiday resort for the Genoese.
For several years now, along the ridge that joins the main peaks (Biurca and Carega del Diavolo, both just below 1000 meters above sea level) a via ferrata has been built with different variations that allow you to try different levels of difficulty and have a good repertoire of what it means to move on trails of this type.
At the end of the difficulties, there is a small but very well equipped hut-bivouac which is the result of the careful care (like the via ferrata itself) of the local volunteers.
Length about 950 meters of which 600 via ferrata
Overall height difference about 300 m from the start.
First sector (Grillo): alternating sections AD - MD (il buco)
Second sector (Biurca Sud): AD or MD
Third sector (transfer and monkey bridge - ponte scimmie): AD
Fourth sector (Cadrega del Diao): D+
Since 2005 the monkey bridge -ponte scimmie (cable above and 1 cable below + 1 cable belay) joins the third to the fourth sector.
The return is made through the path of the normal route (west ridge) which, passing by the Biurca Nord, leads back to Crocefieschi keeping on the west side.
Total time for the complete route including approach and return: 4:30 hours excluding stops.
