cookieless, no-ads, no threats canyon exploring with
Piccarellaia - Felcete
Torrente Faena collects the waters of a large hilly sector which has Monte Peglia as its highest elevation. It is made of two creeks, Faena della Cerasa
and Faena delle Felcete, each having numerous tributaries.
I remember ...
It was half the nineties when I happened the first time to Faena delle Felcete, during a tour in search for new canyons. It was almost at sunset, so I was could go up the stream for a short distance, too little to reach the first narrow. What I saw around me, combined with considerations on the length of the gorge and the modest difference in altitude, convinced me that there was nothing interesting from a canyoning point of view at Faena creek.
Almost 30 years later I began to travel the area with greater attention to streams having little difference in altitude, and surprisingly some of them proved to be interesting canyoning routes. Then Faena delle Felcete came back to my mind...
