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.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Patrick & Walter (German speaking), Paolo, Matteo and Davide.

If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
