TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE REGION ROCK CLIMBING GUIDE
Many of the rock faces in the Trentino Alto Adige valleys were bolted so that one could sharpen skills and exercise the body as needed to climb the vertical walls of the Dolomite's. Today there walls are an attraction in themselves, and there is no end to the amount of sites to explore and many of the sites are within easy reach of public transportation.
The natural and artificial rock walls in Trentino are ideal for all levels and ages of climbers. The home of rock climbing is without doubt Arco (Upper Lake Garda) where the Rock master competition is held every summer. However, every valley has a wall suitable for any ability.
Dozens of other training grounds have been set up in a number of other centres in Trentino where you can climb in complete safety. In addition, there are many equipped indoor facilities even in public parks and artificial walls used for rock climbing meetings and competitions. Many of the 150 Alpine guides in Trentino are also qualified to teach rock climbing, while courses and specialisations are organised throughout the summer by the many schools in operation.
If you can get to one of the sites I have described be sure and buy the local guidebook if it is being sold by someone who has bolted routes in the area. The routes I recommend and routes I have tried over the years, I cannot tell you how some of the routes are now since I do not climb at the same level.
