Climbing for everyone at Falecia Family San Martino

Mika Huhtamaki

We got a nice challenge this year. Our godson and his two brothers are going to visit us in the Arco. And of course they want to learn some climbing. Yahoo, but wait, they are 3, 5 and 8 years old, what we can find for them?

Easy enough access for our small mountaineer frenchie Helli.

Climbing is demanding sport and thus most of the crags have been created with the idea of stretching
your limits. That is good for the active climbers but starting of the sport becomes very hard due the fact that majority of the crags are not suitable for absolute beginners.

To solve the this issue local cities at Lake Garda have been doing excellent job by creating new easy to access and casual climbing crags for kids, beginners and families. One of such crags is Falecia Family San Martino just next to the center of Arco and famous crag Massone.

Crag passed all the test. Easy access, easy routes and good spots for a picnic. White checking the crag we also climbed all the 8 routes from Junior sector graded from 4c to 6b (9-15 meters tall) and checked the kids sector that has routes from 3-4 which are 15-20 meters tall.

This is the place where we are going to visit with our godson's family. A true 5 star experience on its class! Great work from the GardaTrentino outdoor park project, thanks!

Really nice views over Arco and Lake Garda while climbing.

Official topo. Just a notice that grades of the junior wall at routes 5 and 6 are opposite. So 5-Voldemort is actually 6b and 6-Albus Silente is actually 5c. 

Kids wall, 9 routes 4-4b grades and 18-22 meters.

Junior wall, 4-6b and 9-15 meters.
Crag is only 20 minutes by feet from the center of Arco.
