Rock climbing courses at Lake Garda by Mountain Guides School Arco Trentino Dolomites Alps Italy

LAKE GARDA DOLOMITES ITALY The Northern area of Lake Garda Trentino (Arco - Torbole - Riva del Garda ) is presenting itself as the rock climber' s capital. Motivation for this success are the facts that the area is offering walls of up to 1.200 m altitude as well as rocks and boulders suitable for rock climbing. The limestone' s structures allow to perform safely and elegantly all types of rock climbing techniques. The Mediterranean climate, mild in winter and refreshing in summer, permits each kind of rock climbing activity from April through October. The participation in a rock climbing course by our Alpine School Arco and their mountain guides does not require special physical conditions or young age. If you are interested in outdoor activities and if you enjoy discovering something new, this is the right rock climbing course for you. The courses on Kalymnos Island is one of our highlights because of the immense possibility of crags and new routes on this small Island in Greece, more information you find at the link: www.kalymnosclimbing.eu

Alpine base course: rock climbing in Arco Lake Garda and in the Dolomites, Alps, Italy with mountain guides

ALPINE BASE COURSE This alpine base course is destined for people who enjoy trekking and via ferrata but would like to extend their knowledge in climbing rocks and on the glaciers. The program of our mountaineering course consists of two days rock climbing in the crags near Lake Garda Italy and following we move to the Marmolada Dolomites, Alps for three days. The lessons include climbing techniques in every kind of mountaineering situation, rope manouvres, rappelling and self rescue exercises on the rocks and glaciers in the Alps of Italy.

Information on rock climbing Arco and mountaineering courses

INFORMATION ON AND BOOKING

Any type of requests as well as bookings should be made at least 20 days by e-mail guide@alpinguide.com prior to the start of the course with our Alpine School of Arco. You should indicate the number of participants, possible prior mountaineering experience as well as any information necessary to guarantee a successful and efficient course.

EQUIPMENT  BY THE MOUNTAIN GUIDES OF ALPINE SCHOOL

All gear which is necessary for climbing will be made available free of charge by the Mountain Guides of the Alpine School Arco (this includes rock climbing shoes, harness, helmet and rope and carabiner material). This service is included in the rates of the Alpine School, Arco. If you need help choosing the suitable equipment, the mountain guides may give you some good piece of advice.

WHAT HAPPENS, IF IT RAINS ...?

Sometimes it may rain even in Arco and there is the chance that a day of your course cannot take place due to bad weather It is our pleasure to postpone the 'lost' day to another date. If this should not be possible, of course we are not going to charge the full rate for the lost day instead we are only retaining the deposit payment already paid. The same applies to partially used days. In any case the deposit payment is non refundable, as the Alpine School Arco – in order to provide you with a perfect service - is sustaining the same costs … even with bad weather. You will not lose the deposit for your booking and possible lost days, as you may use it within a 2 year time frame or 'transfer' it to a friend.

INSURANCE OF OUR ALPINE MOUNTAIN GUIDES

All of our collaborators of Alpine Climbing School Trentino Dolomites Italy are government licensed Mountain Guides with an international diploma and are officially registered with the regional and international Mountain Guide's Association. With no exception, all of them have a third party liability insurance towards their clients.

PERSONAL INTENSIVE COURSE (Individual tuition)

With max. 2 participants you can benefit from the didactic capacity of our mountain guide who can look back upon 20 years of teaching climbing in our Alpine School of Arco Dolomites. It is possible to choose the dates, the number of climbing days as well as the venues, difficulty degrees, didactical preferences and type of instruction. One mountain guide guiding two guests is an ideal group for a multi-pitch route up to 400 m with ca. 12 pitches.

COURSES FOR BEGINNERS - A short explanation:

The rock climbing courses will take place in one of the many crags around Arco Dolomites. On natural vertical rock walls (equipped with fix) the participants are learning to climb by using the "top-rope" system on single pitch routes. It permits the climber to "fall" in any moment and all that can happen is that the climber remains "hanging" on the rope - a rope which has a capacity of up to 2.000 kg - this is a maximum of security. One day of rock climbing instruction has a duration of approx. 4 to 5 hours. A licensed Alpine Mountain Guide will teach knot, belaying and climbing techniques which are the base of every type of mountain activity such as "Via ferrata" or even ice climbing. We prefer to perform our courses with a small number of participants in order to provide a maximum of guiding service, personal tuition and success for each beginning climber. Thus the Mountain Guide can concentrate on each participant individually, he can evaluate and correct possible mistakes and contribute to make a large progress in climbing. You may ask our Guide for advice regarding any type of alpine mountaineering activity.

INSTRUCTION FOR ADVANCED CLIMBER' S

The goal of most participants in advanced courses is to go climbing independently and to "lead" In the beginning of the course we still climb top-rope on difficult routes trying to reach the limit our your rock climbing capacity with the objective to attain a higher climbing degree, to correct possible mistakes and to refine your climbing technique. Next step in the course is instruction on advanced rope and climbing techniques for climbers who are "leading". The success of the course depends of course on the participants' prior experience and a small number of participants (personal tuition); upon request it is also possible to do multi-pitch routes.

MULTI-PITCH ROUTES AT LAKE GARDA

The area of Lake Garda Dolomites is offering walls of up to 1.200 m altitude which are suitable for scrambling on multi-pitch routes. The limestone structures allow to perform safely and elegantly all kinds of rock climbing and mountaineering techniques. The Mediterranean climate, mild in winter and refreshing in summer, permits each kind of rock climbing instruction, tuition and courses almost throughout the whole year. Our mountain guides still love the old activity of their job: leading on multi-pitch routes. Our mountain guides accompany very often their clients on the walls near Arco (from 200 to 600 m. length - from 6 to 14 pitches).
In the past years local climbers and alpinists have opened many new multi-pitch routes of every difficulty in the area of Arco and Sarca Valley. If you enjoy the long routes and, if you are anxious to discover something "new", this is the right course for you.
