Balladrüm climbing area gives climbers a one-of-a-kind experience with panoramic views over beautiful Lake Maggiore. Its walls are formed from gneiss rock and face south, making them particularly suitable for some spring and autumn climbing, when the weather is mild and a day spent climbing is all the more rewarding.
