More Info

One of Italy’s most well-known rock climbing destinations, Arco (in Trento’s Sarca Valley) is probably most famous for the variety of rock climbing terrain available. From great bolted sport climbing routes on excellent limestone (mostly single-pitch), to long big wall climbing routes that can reach 1,000m, it is no wonder this place has made a name for itself among climbers. If it’s big wall climbing you are after, the walls of Monte Brento, Piccolo Dain and Monte Casale are probably the most famous spots.
