canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
One of the most enchanting places in Calabria, very rich in natural beauties and outdoor sports opportunities. Canyoning enthusiasts find here different trails, first of all the Canyon of river Lao. which begins 2 Km down the village of Laino..
Very short, beautiful, tight narrows, featuring a sequence of 3 waterfalls and a nice stone-arch. Approach, dressing, undressing and return require less than 3 hours. Do it if you are in the vicinity and you have little time.
I remember ...
I started my canyoning summer in Calabria with this easy exploration, so I can get more confidence with these
solitary places ... The canyon is exactly as I expected to be (I had seen it from the bottom during previous
summer): a beautiful final high waterfall preceded by short narrows. Nothing difficult? only a little. I have to
fix bolts for second rappel in an exposed point because it is the only point having decent rock. So one has to use
rope to get to the start of second rappel. Below there are very short narrows bringing to the top of high final
waterfall. My ropes are enough for it. The rappel-line remains out of falling water. There is good rock for bolts,
and I can place them working comfortably straight.
