Location: 2km from Torbole on Lake Garda

The sheer face of Corno di Bo’is a typical one, 150m high, situated over the Gardesana road between Torbole and Malcesine. There are 7 climbs that are longer and single-pitch, of 4c and 5b grades. The routes are well fitted and are suggested as good training for going onto the longer climbs.

You can climb here year-round. The faces are west facing and in the sun. They are virtually empty during the week but can get very busy at weekends.

The views are wonderful and you can see the whole of Lake Garda from north to south whilst climbing.
