Pizzeria / Beautiful Sport Climbing At Arco

di

Pizzeria at Dro close to Arco is a beautiful but difficult sport climbing crag in the Sarca Valley, with 14 routes from 6c+ to 8a.

Pizzeria is a beautiful and difficult crag above the town Dro, just a few minutes away from Arco, Northern Italy's most famous climbing destination. Ideal for spring and autumn, this east facing crag tends not to be crowded due to the difficulty of the routes. This slightly overhanging sheet of grey and yellow limestone was first bolted by Gianguido Dalfovo and Lino Celva and its technica, crimpy routes require great stamina. A 70m rope is obligatory.
