Fast forward the Spring season – climbing in Arco

Spring

Quick and dirty, skip the winter. Within 3.5 hours, you get the spring that you have been looking for. Of course, you have checked the weather forecast, and it’s telling you that it’s going to be fine. Finally, after weeks of long, cold, winter. Climbing in Arco is a splendid destination to run a way from the winter, when the conditions turn good. It’s mild climate offers a short getaway, without having to fly off to another continent. It was a good decision to enjoy this place before the season begins, and before it starts to get real crowded. Enjoy this photo essay of our days in Arco.

Arco, Lago di Garda

High above the town of Torbole lies Nago. This climbing area is one of the oldest that exist in the valley, but holds some still very fine climbing with a great view.

Hiking up the Cima Strussia on a hazy day. It was too cold for climbing and we picked out a summit instead. Perhaps peak would be the better word. There were still plenty of snow at the top. The paths icy. Views from this side to Val di Ledro.

 

Sanderland, Tenno

Lake Tenno, is a few serpentines above Lake Garda with really some stunning views and a sunny wall to dwell the day. The crag must be dry to find perfect conditions to climb in winter. We were lucky. But it was cold!

Arco, Lago di Garda

It looked more like a cliff in France. But it’s really just in Arco. Grottosauro – you won’t find dinasors here, but some fine routes

 

Arco, Lago di Garda

The strong northern winds usually bring good weather to the south, while it rains and snow in the northern Alps. But this wind is pretty cold too. Good, when you find a wind sheltered, sun trapped crag.
