Unlike the walls of its many quarries, created by human intervention, Rocca Pendice is a natural cliff face. Geologically speaking, it is a vein of volcanic rock (trachyte) that has surfaced from the softer, eroded, sedimentary rocks below it. Recently acquired by the Euganean Hills' park authority almost in its entirety, this site has always been used for rock climbing and is a favourite spot for enthusiasts of this sport.
