Rock climbing & vie ferrate

Bike camping trentino

 

The mountains surrounding the campsite offer some of the best climbing experiences to be found in Europe: natural and artificial free climbing walls for climbers of all levels, caves to explore and iced waterfalls to ascend in the winter. Within walking distance there is the natural practice climbing wall Palestra di Roccia di Terlago and the beginners wall at Lake Lamar. More climbing routes on Paganella Mountain. For a special experience we recommend a guided climb, cave excursion or via ferrata led by one of the certified mountain guides of Trentino Climb

A five minutes walk from our campsite is Palestra di Roccia - a free climbing wall of sheer plate with 23 routes between 15-25 meters of height and a difficulty of 6b-8a. Thanks to its favorable southern exposure a sunny climb is guaranteed, making it a preferred destination amongst local climbers throughout spring summer and autumn. Ropes are recommended for those wanting to climb higher than 50 metres - be advised that you do so at your own risk as the site is not owned or maintained.

 

Expert climbers will find more challenging routes on the almost vertical limestone walls of Paganella mountain, stretching up above our campsite. In addition to the central peak - La Roda (2014 m) - there are Cornetto di Pra Grande (1884 m), Becco di corno (1880 m) and a few others. On the southwestern side the massif ends on Passo di San Antonio (1893 m), beyond which the Mount Gazza range begins. In 2016 a new cliff with 18 different routes from 4a to 7b was equipped by Trentino Activity on the top fo Paganella, near Sentiero delle Aquile. More information can be found here.
