Corno di Bo

International > Europe > Italy > Arco and Surrou… > Nago Torbole

Description

This is a great place for beginners or someone wanting a very casual introduction to climbing near Lake Garda.

All routes are closely bolted. Some climbs, like Pritt and Kuki look like they might have some manufactured footholds. All routes are slab. The wall is cut by a substantial ledge that makes it easy to switch routes if you prefer a different finish.

Getting There

Follow SS 240 from Arco and SS 249 towards Torbole until you are driving by the lake. you will pass through a short tunnel (Salto della Capra). Corno di Bo is about 300 meters ahead just before the next tunnel (Corno di Bo). You can park just after this tunnel and walk back through if you are there early. Otherwise, pass through two more tunnels for more parking on the left, but you will have to walk back along a pretty narrow and sometimes busy road. Wherever you park, after you walk back through the Corno di Bo tunnel, turn sharply left and you will see a sign listing the routes and ratings.

Approach: less than 5 minutes from parking.
Descent: Rappel with a 60 m. rope or use the cables to the left.
