Massone (Policromuro) Climbing Area, Trento Province

Rock Climbing Arco Trento, Massone

Massone is still one of the most popular climbing sites in Italy.  If you are in the Arco area you will want to head up to this multi-colored wall, (the other name for the Massone area is Policromuro, which translates to multi-colored wall).  A solid grey and red striped limestone wall with over 130+ routes ranging from 5a to 8c.  This is a great mid-season area or winter site, otherwise the rock tends to get slippery on hotter days due to the polished rock.  In the summer it is best to climb in the late afternoon, and in winter it is best to climb early morning.

ACCESS

From Arco by car 2.8 km or 3.5 km (Sector Pueblo).
From the bridge over the river Sarca follow the SS45 in the direction of Trento - Madonna di Campiglio. After 600 metres turn right for Massone/Falesia Policromuro and follow indications for Falesia Policromuro. Once in the village enter Via degli Olivi (a narrow road) leading to the olive groves. Continue following the signs to Policromuro until parking where the terrain levels out (10 parking places). This is ideal for the lower sectors, for the other sectors continue another 200 metres to a smaller parking area at the base of sectors A and B which has space for a further 8 cars. For the sector Pueblo continue along the road and after the third turning on the left there is a small lay-by.
