The Ruppe Secca Sud and approach. Pleasent, easy bolted limestone. Much cooler and less polished than the valley below © zach.stone

Crag features

The crag is made up many faces, mainly east facing but some south and is situated just outside of Arco itself. It offers sport, trad and even has some aid multi-pitch routes. Descent, for all but the Rupe Secca South, is down the via ferrata taking about 1 hour.

South Face - has a 30 minute approach and is between 90 and 220m. However it is situated above the via ferrata, so care is needed not to knock rocks down.

East Face - between 200m and 400m heigh and has a 20 minute approach.

Pilastro Zanzara - east facing, it only has a 10 minute walk in and is generally between 300 and 350m.

Rupe Secca East - only takes 10 minutes to get to and is between 150m and 260m.

Rupe Secca South - has only a 10 minute approach and is the shortest of the faces between 80m and 120m. Descent is generally by abseil along the routes. See access notes.

Approach notes

Rupe Secca South is marked up as private, as you have to enter the olive groves to get there. If there are people around you will be stopped from entering.
