The name of the album

the alternative name for this album could be : the swimming (or bathing) ridges
some hundreds of pics could be posted here about the calanques ... better giving a look to their pages :)

I made this album just to post some info about the the 3 "faraglioni" di Capri, that are the final pinnacles of the ridge coming down from the East summit of the island.
They rise about 100m over the sea and have a rock climbing history ... already in the late '30 some famous lombardic climbers (Vitali and company) went to climb there along routes that (I heard) are still used.
The accesses to the routes start from the sea (a boat is needed) with the excepion of the first one : the "faraglione di terra" that can be reached crossing the strip of land joining to the island : the only problem (from june to september) is that you must pay a lot of money to cross the bathing establishment ...

Here a PDF page about Alpinismo Classico a Capri

Please, post here only images of rocks that have at least one rock route and, in the caption of the photo, a short info about it
