Description

This is the beautiful peak rising over Lake Toblino (Lago di Toblino) and Sarche. The South facing walls have a number of routes. The West face is called the Parete del Limaro. The rock is Limestone. The walls are steep. Many approaches are very short.

Piccolo Dain hosts routes of varying difficulty, going from closely bolted beginner routes all the way to 5.13.

Getting There

From Arco, take the SS 45 to Sarche (approx. 16 km). Approaches will diverge from there depending on what area you are climbing at.

There is an English-language print guidebook Sarca Walls, by Diego Filippi (edizioni Versante Sud). To keep up with the newest routes, get the latest edition.

Some might say that the "South wall" faces more like SE, and the "Parete del Limaro face" is more like SW (rather than W).

Via Ferrata Rino Pisetta (N46.0527 E10.9485) around on the SE or E side is rather popular.

It is the most difficult VF (as of 2017) within two hours drive from Arco. Most of it can be done in "free" rock-climbing style (making moves with hands and feet directly on the rock, using the fixed hardware only for Protection, not Aid), with lots of free moves in the 5.7-5.9 range - (difficulty in "free" style not so different from the new "Moon Bears" route on the SW face of this peak).
