The current "Settore Gare" cliff – now forming part of the history of international rock climbing because of staging the first three years of world free climbing championship (1985 – 1987 – 1988) – is the result of these three competitions. The cliff is splendid and eminently climbable. Typically a summer place, it only gets the sun in the morning. The routes are in technical style on a vertical or slightly overhanging wall, and generally have some holds cut in and resin flat-top holds, which were left over from the rock climbing competitions. The height of the routes indicated varies from 15 to 27m.
A recent overhaul of the wall has brought some order to the cliff, and it now has some ten stretches re-pegged with resin bolts, and almost the same number of renewed 10mm spit-fix. In total, the lengths numbering 5 to 21 are excellently equipped, except for number 6.
To reach the place from Bardonecchia, go in the direction of Colle della Scala-Francia, climb the Valle Stretta along its carriageable road – first asphalted and then becoming a dirt road – and then, having reached the plateau, on the left will be Parete dei Militi: the sector described is on the extreme left.
