VILLA SANTA CATERINA BOULDERING AREA | TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE
Villa Santa Caterina is located just north of Brunico in the Campo Tures area and offers a nice day of bouldering in the woods on the side of a hills. There are several good problems but locals have marked the rocks with arrows to designate specific problems. I personally found the arrows to be a bit confusing (as happens many times when the rock is marked), but there are several good natural lines you can follow and just forget about the marks, unless you happen to run into a local to show you the ropes.
Nearby is a small pond (Lake) that offers camping and is full of tourist in the summer. The small town of Villa Santa Caterina does not have a lot of facilities but you can get the basic needs for food and water.
