Quota 280

At Monte Gallo rises over Sferracavallo, in the form of a triangle, a small peak called the “Quota 280”. The peak is on the left of the “Monte Santa Margherita”. The rock and the characteristics of the tours are very similar to those in St. Margherita. Everyone can expect diversified climbing passages with awesome views at the easily accessible Quota.
