Type of Trip
Join me on this rock climbing day trip to one of the best rock walls in the Aosta Valley: the Pilastro Lomasti.
This 200-meter cliff offers dozens of routes of varying difficulty for intermediate and advanced climbers. You’ll find high-quality granite and excellent conditions that make for an unforgettable rock climbing outing.
From the village of Arnad, we’ll take the road that goes towards Machaby. We’ll leave the car after about 2 km at a parking lot and walk the rest of the way to the pilastro. The approach is around 45 minutes long.
Once at the cliff, I’ll find the perfect route for you to be able to challenge yourself while also enjoying the day. I’m a local certified guide and know this area like the back of my hand, so I’ll find the route that best adapts to your skills and goals.
The best time to visit if from April to October but take into account that it may be too hot to climb during the summer.
If this rock climbing day trip sounds like a good option, contact me and we’ll organize our outing to the Pilastro Lomasti. The Aosta Valley is full of interesting options for rock climbing so don’t hesitate to ask if you had another spot in mind.
And if you’re visiting this area during the winter, check out my ice climbing day trips for beginners. I’ll be happy to teach you some of the basics to practice this amazing discipline!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
About the Guide
Born in Aosta in 1970, I am an aspirant mountain guide and a passionate climber. For me, the lightning strike came in while climbing Punta Tzan with some friends: from that day on, my whole life has been the mountains and practicing mountain sports and activities.
Among my most significant ascents are: Mattehorn, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Aiguille Verte, Monviso and Mont Maudit, among others. I will be happy to guide you around my home region!
