Three-day climbing session on the best multi-pitch routes in the Sarca valley.

A “climbing trip” to discover the most beautiful routes that have made the climbing history of the Sarca valley. Just add the word Arco and you have it all right there!

It provides the most amazing cracks, dihedrals and chimneys of the valley, “old school” climbing of proven satisfaction.

For those who have never been there, the Sarca valley is one of the places in Europe with the highest concentration of “walls” in the valley floor all within a very short walkable distance; a few km away from Lake Garda, with an almost Mediterranean climate that makes the ideal mid-seasons spot to get back to climbing after the winter break.
