Description

If you have a passion for heights, then this multi-pitch rock climbing trip in the Sarca Valley is ideal.

Follow the waters of the Sarca River southwards where it flows into Garda Lake in the northern region of Lombardy. To the north of the lake lies the stunning town of Arco, guarded on one side by giant limestone cliffs.

Arco is home to hundreds of multi-pitch routes that are suited for all types of difficulties. This makes our trip incredibly flexible depending on your own level of experience, fitness and ability.

The town’s limestone giants create the perfect playground for rock climbers: from single-pitch routes to long multi-pitch routes all cleaned and bolted. All situated around the ancient lands of Arco, with its Medieval castle overlooking the landscape.

For beginners, Muro dell’Asino is the perfect route to take their first steps and explore the beautiful landscapes of northern Italy. Also, Placche di Baone is a collection of limestone that lies to the south of Monte Baone. It offers mostly grip-based climbing with incredible views of the town of Arco and the lake.

For climbers seeking more of a challenge, the Spigolo Nascosto route in Santa Massenza is an ideal climb. This 7-pitch climb has some bolts but has mainly threads and trees as protection.

And of course, the duration of the trip depends on the route that you choose.

Get in touch now to reserve your place to climb the stunning limestone rocks of the Sarca Valley and tailor the trip to your own level of experience and skill.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
