VALSUGANA COVOLO CLIMBING AREA | VICENZA

 

One of the oldest walls in the Valsugana, the area was developed in the 1970's by Carlo Zonta, a local from Bassano.  The wall sets just off the main highway, on the right side, as you are going toward Trento.  Just before the town of Primolano is the exit for the tunnels to go to Feltre, the wall is just before the and is around 150 meters high.  Initially, the area was an Aid Climbing training area then as climbing levels increased in the 80's many of the walls were freed.  The routes are still well maintained and in the hot summer months an idea location to get in a few climbs.
