Year after year the Northern area of the Garda Lake 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 beginners

A short explanation:
The climbing courses will take place in one of the many climbing areas around Lake Garda. On natural vertical rock walls (equipped with SPIT) 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 climbing has a duration of approx. 4 to 5 hours. A licensed Mountain Guide will teach knot, belaying and climbing techniques which are the base of every type of mountain activity such as Via ferrata (iron/ladder paths or even ice climbing). We prefer to perform our courses with a small number of participants in order to provide a maximum of service 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 activity.

Information on advanced climber' s course

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 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 courses

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 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 booking

Any type of requests as well as bookings should be made at least 20 days by e-mal prior to the start of the course with our Alpine School of Trentino Dolomites. 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 courses

All 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 Arco ...! 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.
