This is a selective guidebook describing the best places around Arco to rock climb during the summer, where cool crags or shady multi-pitch routes are required. This guidebook is ideal for those who are on holiday in the Lake Garda area during the hot summer months and are looking to go rock climbing, but stay out of the sun. At the start of the guidebook is a list of the crags, with the number of routes at each grade, and symbols indicating when the ideal time is to visit, orientation, approach time and the style of climbing to be found. This makes it very easy to use and to decide the best crag to visit at a quick glance.
The guidebook covers 4 main areas these being, Arco, Sarche Valley, Giudicarie Valley, and around Trento including Rovereto. In total 40 different crags are covered with hundreds of routes across a wide range of grades.
All the single pitch sport routes are shown on colour photo topos, with the multi-pitch routes shown on either topo diagrams or colour photo topos. At the start of each crag there is a location map and approach information. For the multi-pitch routes descent information and what gear is required is also given.
