Full description

Have you always thought that climbing rock faces is an activity reserved for the fearless hearts of danger-shy people? We tell you it is not!Climbing is a complete, fun, exciting and suitable discipline for everyone.

With the right steps and the help of experienced instructors, you can discover this beautiful sport on an introductory climbing day in the Sarca Valley in Trentino.

You will climb a natural wall equipped for sport climbing in total safety. You will rely on our instructors who will teach you the basic techniques and pass on your passion and attitude in a full day of sport and nature!

What we will do

We will meet at 9:00 a.m. in Arco, in the province of Trento. We will meet the instructor and the other participants, and first we will have an introductory lesson on safety rules and the use of equipment (provided by the organiser).

We will quickly move on to practice, with a series of warm-up exercises, and in no time at all we will set foot on the rock, feel the wall under our fingers and begin to become familiar with the natural element that will become our faithful companion.

The teaching method that the instructor will follow will be that of alternating practical and theoretical parts, starting with a basic grade and progressing to greater and greater difficulties that are perfectly manageable in an introductory climbing lesson. In this way, the day will pass quickly and the participants' attention will always be riveted. We will look forward to tackling all the steps step by step!

The Valle of Sarca in Trentino is a true climbing paradise and one of the first places in Italy where this activity was developed, thanks to the particular morphology of the rock and the numerous crags and walls present.

The Sarca Valley therefore lends itself particularly well to the less experienced climbers, as it offers routes of varying difficulty and gives everyone the opportunity to follow their inclinations and improve their skills. skills.

A break is planned for a packed lunch. The activity lasts 8 hours and will end at around 17:00.
