Advanced rock climbing course for children and teenagers at a crag on Lake Garda, in Arco
Climbing on rock with a mountain guide
The advanced course is oriented to boys that had already taken part to the basic course or already know how to climb. I suggest it too if you have difficulty il lead climb, like to improve or feel more secure.
During the course they will learn to lead climb, in safety and you will able to climb in crag in whole autonomy, thoughtless.
I encourage direct experience; I alternate moments of induction and deduction depending on age and type of course. This method stimulates the experience and increases the personal mobility of the youngest. I motivate them with games so they learn while having fun.
The advanced course takes place in the most beautiful crags of Arco. The boys and girls will be part of a small group and I will be there with them, attentive to their needs, to follow their improvements.

No, the crags are near to the car parks and the approach last from 10 to 15 minutes.
From six years old anyone can climb, even if they are 70.
No, you don’t need to be sporty to try climbing. You have to be sporty if you want to become an athlete.
You need a helmet, a harness and shoes all of which I supply. I suggest however you wear socks which cover your heels to avoid the shoe to bother you. If you already have your own equipment you can bring it with you.
No, you will be belayed with the rope and you cannot fall.
The rock climbing courses takes place on walls suitable to learn and you are not forced to reach the highest point. You can climb up to where you feel confident and then be lowered and get back to the ground.
