Rock Climbing Italy, Naga

The Rock Climbing site known as Nago is located just west of the small town of Nago.  The town sits overlooking the Lake of Garda (Italy's largest lake) and is perhaps the second most visited climbing site in the area.  The climbing site offers over 120 routes at average grade of 6b, so this attracts lots of climbers.  There are plenty of lower grades to work on and improve your skill levels and the location is very scenic.

Rock Climbing Italy, Nago Map



From Arco by car 7,5 km (or 9,5 km), then 5-10 minutes on foot.
From the bridge over the river Sarca follow the SS240 for Rovereto. Reaching the roundabout at Nago continue straight ahead, passing the Hotel Rubino after the traffic lights, turn right following the indications for Strada Monte Baldo. Continue for 1 km passing through the vineyards to reach the junction signposted Capitello S. Giuseppe. 
For the lower sectors: enter the track on the right and continue for 400 metres until reaching a convenient parking spot next the Ranch house. Leave the car and continue along the Sentiero della Pace for 300 meters. At the first fork turn left (signposted Malga Zures) and continue ahead until arriving at a wall below the first lower sector and Mangusta sector. From here it is easy to reach sectors la Mandria and Centrale (and the other sectors).
For the higher sectors (Spleen, Il Tasso and I Ciclopi): once reached the junction marked by the Capitello S. Giuseppe continue ahead along the tarmac road, climbing towards Monte Baldo and passing through olives and pines with fine views across Lago di Garda. After 2 km park on the left by the side of the road directly in front of the top sectors. Leave your car and head towards the bend and go into the woods. Follow the evident path always straight and in 5 minutes reach Sector I Ciclopi and successively to the other sectors Il Tasso, Spleen and Central.
