Garda (the city) Rock Climbing
|The crag is open, but some of it is located on private property. Please tread lightly!|
3 sectors, all with bomber limestone. All routes are well-equipped for sport climbing. You're more likely to find them to be over-bolted, rather than run-out. All walls are south-facing, but shade can be found, especially in sector B. Sector A has shorter routes (around 10-15 meters long) and a great little cave with several fun routes. Sector B has routes in the 20-25 meter range and plenty of shade. Sector C has the most difficult routes and sees little action. The trail is somewhat overgrown. None of these areas are ever very crowded, as the route to climber ratio is wonderful!
The parking and trailhead are both located between Albisano and Garda.
From Garda: Head north on Via della Madrina for about 1.5km (the street name changes after a block or so, but that doesn't matter). There will be a small shrine on the right; immediately after parking is on the left. The trailhead is located at the north-end of the parking area.
For sector A: follow the trail to the barbed-wire fence. Take the right-fork and continue along to the rock face.
For sectors B & C: follow the trail to the barbed-wire fence. Take the right-fork, then turn left at the end of the barbed-wire fence. Sector C is located about 50 m past the left-end of sector B.
Climbing Season For the Italy area.

Featured Route For Garda (the city)

Lago di Garda also offers wonderful sailing, you can rent cats fairly inexpensively (Nago for sure). I've done some diving, both north of Garda (city) at Torri del Benaco (sunken boat) and the other side of the lake near Santa Guilia. Both sites were cold, dank typical lake diving.
