Review
60 climbing routes in the Sarca Valley, north of the Lake Garda, with difficulties ranging between the 5th and 7th grades.

Each route in this guide has a clearly illustrated topo, accompanied by a detailed description including how to access and descend from the climb and in addition a photo of each wall with the routes clearly marked. There are also full page colour photos showing details within each route.

Since these routes have opened they have become very popular. This is probably due to the care and sensitivity that has been put into creating them. Rather than the ‘conquering’ of the mountain being important it is more the experience during the climb. By taking into account the form of the rock and of the movements of the body, Heinz Grill, describes how climbing can become a form of art. This enables the development of a sensitive perception of the interaction between the person and surrounding nature.
