canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Torrente Pizzinno is a tributary of river Noce, very near to Tirreno sea. Torrent is fed by rich karst springs,
giving it a large flow even in summer.
Pizzinno digs a short tight canyon, where water make dangerous whirls and cascades impossible to be rappelled
under the waterflow.
In the tightest point a splendid arch of stone adds more beauty to a very beautiful place.
A short but intense canyoning trail to be done with experience and caution.

What you find in the detailed description
I remember ...
I was tired, because the day before we had explored Canale dell'Arma.
I didn't trust in my forces, didn't trust in that stream with so much flow ... At the top of first waterfall
I say to Gaetano and Andrea to go on without me. They go, abseil the waterfall and disappear beyond the handle.
I remain some minutes there, thinking.
But in a couple of minutes Gaetano's voice calls to me: "after the waterfall it is a comfortable escape,
come and see!". So I go, so at last the exploration was done by three guys!
