Safety rules for climbers

Climbing in peace & love

To climb safely, you must act responsibly. We recommend that all climbers who choose to climb in Garda Trentino follow these guidelines.

The cliffs and routes featured on this website belong to Garda Trentino Outdoor Park.

With this project, the Tourism Board and Public Sector work to provide the highest possible safety standards, compatible with a sport that takes place on natural terrain and therefore inevitably presents risks that must be managed independently by climbers.

Every year, qualified professionals check the condition of the equipment on the walls, replace it where necessary, and assess whether new climbing areas can be opened.

Thanks to this project, Garda Trentino is home to cliffs and boulders of various types and in different contexts. Some are suitable for beginners who have never experienced the thrill of climbing a rock face, while others represent a challenge even for the most experienced climbers.

In any case, rock faces are a natural environment, and can therefore be unpredictable, since they are exposed to all kinds of risks and weather conditions. This is why you should always be careful and adopt all the measures required to ensure your own safety and that of your climbing companions.

SAFETY RULES

  • Do not climb in adverse weather conditions.

  • Always wear a helmet as there is always a possibility of falling rocks from above.

  • Do not stray from marked approach paths.

  • Only stay at the base of the wall for the time strictly necessary for climbing and safety manoeuvres, and do not stand directly below climbers on the wall.

  • Always check the anchors and handholds on the wall.

  • In bouldering areas, always use crash pads and blocking techniques.

  • When climbing, you should be aware of the risks associated with the activity and use the correct safety techniques and equipment.

Moreover, here you’ll find useful tips to help you better manage your climbing experience.

  • Before starting climbing, perform a mutual check of the safety equipment: harness, quick draws, belay knot, and brake position.

  • Never climb unsecured beyond the first anchor.

  • Clip all available quick draw points on the wall; a fall is always possible, even on easier sections.

  • Always remove rings and bracelets as they could get caught on the rock and cause serious injuries.

  • If you are not experienced in using safety equipment and techniques, seek the assistance of a professional.
