canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Rio del Merro
few kilometers from Prenestini Mounts the rock is the same, so the streams have the same features. This is the case of Rio del Merro, a typical Prenestini canyon: few engaged (a lot of escape possibilities), much scrambling and many rappels. There's a difference, however: water flows in Rio del Merro, rather than the typycal Prenestini canyon.
I remember ...
Normally you can't see canyons of Balzi area from the outside, because they are hidden by woods and perspective. Your eyes see nothing more than a wooden valley, similar to thousands of valleys in Appennino. But sometimes a change in point of view may reveal a different reality.
