La Gola is one of the historic crags of Arco, nestled in a beautiful gorge facing Toblino lake.
La Gola must be visited! Its beautiful location and the high quality of the routes make the crag one of the best in the area of Arco.
There is something to climb for everyone: over 160 routes from 4a to 8b/c, super technical walls and huge overhangs. The quality of the rock is always excellent and also the equipment is good.
The approach to all the sectors is very easy and short, the crag base of the sectors is generally comfortable.
Almost all the sectors require a good technique and high finger strength, cause the walls are generally vertical on a compact grey limestone. But if you are a fan of the big overhangs, there are also two beautiful caves, La casa del piacere and Terzo millennio, where tufas and stalactites rules. Here it is possible to climb also when it is raining.

La gola is a beautiful crag and it is a good idea to spend one day climbing here (maybe even more than one!). It is possible to enjoy its routes during the whole year and in any weather condition, just choose the sector properly!


La gola was discovered in the 80s and the first sectors that were equipped are Casa del piacere, Il nasino, Guardrail, Il castello and Pezzent area. The other sectors Terzo Millennio, Il giardino, Il tornante, L’ugola and Arcadioland were born some years later. In the last years part of the routes were re-bolted by the community of Valle dei Laghi and some new lines were set up by Il giardino and La casa del piacere sectors.
The first equippers of the crag where Roberto Bassi and Heinz Mariacher, then team Sisyphos, the community of Valle dei Laghi and many other climbers completed the work.

Originally Roberto Bassi set up the bolts of Pezzent area in strange and unconfortable positions, in order to let him train on hard clippings.
