Mountain Guides Alpine School Arco Lake Garda Dolomites Alps Trentino Italy rock climbing mountaineering hiking trekking canyoning via ferrata courses
Year after year the Northern area of the Garda Lake Italy is presenting itself as the rock climber' s capital.
Responsible 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 kinds of climbing techniques. The Mediterranean climate, mild in winter and refreshing in summer, permits each
kind of climbing almost throughout the whole year.
The participation in a climbing course is independent of age and does not require special physical conditions. If you love outdoor activities and, if you are anxious to discover something new, this is the right course for you. Climbing may be considered as one of the most comprehensive types of sport as you do not only need almost all of your body fibers but also your brain.
Information on rock climbing courses for beginnersA short explanation:
Information on advanced climber' s courseThe 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 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 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 (two or max . three persons); upon request it is also possible to do multi-pitch routes.
Personal intensive rock climbing coursesWith 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 Trentino Dolomites. It is possible to choose the dates, the number of climbing days as well as the venues, difficulty degrees and didactical preferences. One mountain guide with two guests is an ideal group for a multi-pitch route up to 400 m with ca. 12 pitches.
Information requests and bookingAny type of requests as well as bookings should be made at least 20 days by e-mal email@example.com prior to the start of the course with our Alpine School of Trentino Dolomites Italy. You should indicate the number of participants, possible prior mountaineering experience as well as any information necessary to guarantee a successful and efficient course.
Necessary equipment for our rock climbing coursesAll the material which is necessary for climbing will be made available free of charge by our Mountain Guides (this includes as well climbing shoes, harness, helmet). This service is included in our prices. If you need help choosing the suitable equipment, the Guides may give you some good piece of advice.
Wath happens if it rains ...?Sometimes it even rains in Italy ...! It goes without saying that the lost climbing days due to rain, will either be made up for or will be partly deducted from the total price.
