Summary

Very popular single-pitch sport climbing crag near Arco but also some longer classics.

Description

Nice crag above the village Padaro near Arco. It's face is south oriented and best time is in the winter months from October to March.

Access issues inherited from Arco - Trento Area

Many crags in the area of Arco are located on private land and the huge popularity of climbing and the resulting crowds brought it with it, that issues with land owners popped up in the past and continue to pop up from time to time. Please be sensitive to regional closures and limitations to access. Stay informed and stick to local regulations.

Approach

From Arco drive to Padaro and pass the village. Below the road makes to turns and between them there are two little parking lots. Don't park in the turns as lorries may come through. From the second turn follow the paths to the crag.

Very nice multi pitch route with belay anchors and bolts where it is hard to set up protection with trad gear. Rocks and friends are necessary for the cracks. The view to Arco and the Lago di Garda is amazing.

There are 2 more pitches in 6 on the "flame" (the cliff right of the start) that are part of the route - climb them and scramble down first .
