| Val Lomasone
Val Lomasone offers routes of all grades and difficulties. It has also been well cared for and expanded by the Gruppo Rocciatori del Lomaso. The crag consists of a block of terraced limestone, exposed to the west, and climbable from spring to late autumn. It is a valid and interesting alternative to the neighbouring area of Arco.
Quality of rock
The rock at Lomaso is very compact with corners and small roofs. Its walls provide technically committing climbing.
The walls are exposed to the west and are optimal for a visit in spring or autumn. It is also possible to find good conditions in summer since the sun arrives on the walls only in the early afternoon and disappears quickly behind the hill side. In winter the sun reaches the walls for little more than an hour and it is not worth the effort to make a long journey.
Perfect bolts, recently placed.
Number of routes / grades
There are 82 routes from 2 to 7c+, most of the routes are around 6c+.
From Ponte Arche turn back left in the direction of Lomaso. Pass beyond Campo and Vigo Lomaso until reaching Dasindo. Here at the entrance to the village and by a wooden cross, turn left and continue along Val Lomasone following the indications to the Palestra di roccia. After nearly 2km at a fish farm, the tarmac road becomes a gravel track. Continue on this, pass Malga Lomasone until reaching parking with a picnic table. In front of this a well signposted path leads to the crag.
