Arco is at the northern tip of Lago di Garda, just northeast of Riva del Garda. There are amazing limestone formations that are swarming with busy bees on the weekends. Many long, run out multi-pitch climbs on rusted pins blot these walls. There are also a number of beginner crags to practice on (5.0 even). A car access crag is Nago wall, where wall to wall 1P sport 5.6-5.13 await. There are remote crags yet to have bolted lines betrothed to them. There are also many climbs around Lake Garda. There are climbing shops spewing into the streets from every corner of Arco-town where deals are good and so is the food. Guidebooks in every western language are plentiful.
From Verona (or A4) Take E45/A22 to Marco, then take SS240 to SS240dir to Arco

Sustained 11+/12- climbing with a lot of crimping continues on a stiff slightly overhung grade until the last bolt with a very hard crux. One decent rest comes above the first bulge. After that it's enduro until the final powerful move....[more] Browse More Classics in International
