Rocca della Garda

Liguria, IT

The view from Veravo to the eastern side of the Monte Alpe offers a series of cliffs and smaller crags.The long wall of the Rocche della Garda however is the most inviting one.The first developers must have just been amazed by what they had found - a vertical slab of up to 40 metres height with normal quality rock but as beautiful as it is compact.The difficulty of the routes on this wall is high. It has drip formations and many features (style Castigo at the Fontana). It starts off with the splendid 6c pilaster of Donna Sabina, continues with the 7a Iqbal and the slab on the left (Lo Scudo) where all is difficult. The slab is a little “old style” jewel for strong fingers and feet. Presently three sectors exist: Lo Scudo, on the left, the Pensile on the other side of the crest, and the Destro (or Papapuk) on the right where lots remains to be done.
