(The Other) Limestone Bouldering Area!

I couldn't help but repost this video of the bouldering in the Gran Sasso of central Italy.  Limestone doesn't usually produce boulders big enough for bouldering on (the rock tends to fracture instead of forming blocks).  I was excited to see this trailer for a film about limestone bouldering in Italy, especially as several of the problems look very (!) Frank Slide-like.

The film Magia di Calcare (Magic of Limestone) by Roberto Parisse

The film is entitled Magia di Calcare (The Magic of Limestone).  Click here to enjoy the short film!
