Spiaggia delle Lucertole Climbing Area, Trento Province
Spiaggia delle Lucertole is located along the eastern shore of Lake Garda and in the Trentino-Alto Adige Region. The climbing site is a nice grey limestone wall with technical routes on a slab wall. Spiaggia delle Lucertole was bolted in the late 70's or early 80's by some of the historical climbers of the region. Once a popular place to climb the area is now a bit polished and most people visiting the area, are there to climb the beginner slab walk on the opposite side.
Spiaggia delle Lucertole would be an excellent deep water solo site if the wall was overhanging, instead you risk hitting the wall is you fall from higher up. The base of the routes can be reached by lowering off from above. Be sure to have a good sling to attach yourself to the wall with that is long enough for you to be comfortable in the belay.

GETTING TO SPIAGGIA DELLE LUCERTOLE
If you are climbing at Spiaggia delle Lucertole it is most likely because you are visiting the Arco Climbing Area. So coming north from Torbole you will drive south along Lake Garda. The climbing area is about 10 km from Torbole. If you are driving from somewhere other than Arco I would suggest you exit at the Rovereto Sud autostrade exit and following the signs to Riva del Grade until you arrive to Torbole. Driving up the lake from the south is a nice drive but if you are there during a weekend or holiday season there is too much traffic.
You can reach the area by bus from the Rovereto Train station.
