Arco - Belvedere
The name ‘Belvedere’ is Italian and means nothing other than ‘pretty view’. As the name suggests, this is also the particularity of this crag. Like at no other crag, climbers are spoilt with a fabulous view across Lake Garda. It is a unique place and also highly popular with photographers.
The crag is situated only a few kilometers from Arco and easily accessible thanks to the new panoramic path. The crag is ideal for beginners and the lower Sector A offers shorter and easier routes on a rather slabby wall with slopers. Whilst the higher Sector B provides longer, more demanding routes with big holds through the steep overhang, ideal for hard-movers. Having power and good technique definitely won’y be a disadvantage here.
The crag is well-equipped and safely bolted. Due to its beauty and famous climbs the crag is extremely popular, mostly at the weekends and in the high season. It is not possible to climb in Belvedere in the rain and climbing in strong winds is not recommended. This beautiful crag was bolted by L. Colò, M.Grasso and Giampaolo Calzà (Trota).
Drive from Arco towards Rovereto/Nago. Park the car for free right next to the roundabout in Nago, in the big parking lot. Due to safety reasons, it is forbidden to park in the old Belvedere parking lot on the main road that overlooks the lake. Please make sure to park in the new parking lot next to the roundabout.
From the parking lot, a new path leads directly to sector A and for sector B, just follow the path downwards. It takes about 10 minutes. The new path is little longer than the older one but also a lot safer.
