Who we are? Rock Blocks is a group of friends from Finland who love to travel, especially in Italy. Our (Mika's & Heta's) history goes already  back to year 2001 when we spent a week in Malcesine. Back then we didn't knew that much about great opportunities at the Garda region. But somehow the spirit  grew on us and already on 2002 I was with Heta at Riva del Garda for two weeks and since then we have been at Lake Garda 7 times and in Italy 10 times.

During the years we have been inviting our friends and families to visit here with us. Heta's parents visited us last year at Arco, Jarkko has been here three times and this is Sami's second time. This year we are breaking the record when total of 7 Finns are here. Current newcomers are Sami's wife Nora, my brother Juha and his girlfriend Niina.

Heta leads the rope to the top of the 5b route.
To get our newcomers Juha and Niina familiar with the activities we already organized a quick via ferrata to Monte Colodri. But via ferrata was just a warmup, actual target was to show some climbing on a beatiful rock wall. Our choise was Coltura (read more about Coltura) that offers great views and long routes even for beginners.

During the day we also tested our photo and filming equipment. Few fotos of the session are included.

Niina's first rock climbing experience!
