Summary

Less frequented low-altitude crag with views on lake Garda

Description

A former alpine training ground, this area has been reequipped with bolts and now offers some pleasant climbs somewhat above the shore of lake Garda.

Approach

From Riva, follow signes towards "Limone". It is safest to leave the car in the park house just after the tunnel. You may take a chance an continue for another 500 m, but parking there seems mostly restricted or is occupied. After the hydropower station (huge pipes from uphill), the old Ponale road (closed for cars) branches off, while the road to Limone continues through a tunnel. Walk ~200 m along the old Ponale road just before its first tunnel. There, opposite an info-board, a narrow trail leads right and uphill. After 3 min you reach the cliff.
