The imposing Olympic mountains of Bardonecchia and the unspoilt nature is an ideal setting for climbing. There are several equipped climbing walls and a "via ferrata" (a mountain route which is equipped with fixed cables, stemples, ladders, and bridges).
The Parete dei Militi is a very well-known climbing wall situated in the nearby Valle Stretta and it was used for the first world climbing championships in the 1980s. The Wall has a number of random rocks to climb on.
For lovers of the sports centre, Palazzetto dello sport, in the centre of Bardonecchia, has an equipped indoor wall.
