The cliff is located just a few hundred meters from the lake and it is a sort of anticipation of the traditional ways of the Brenta Dolomites.

  • always wear a helmet whether while climbing or during a stop at the foot of the cliff
  • before starting to climb, double-check your safety equipment reciprocally; climbing harness, quickdraws, knot and brake stand
  • do not climbing alone
  • stop at the foot of the cliff only for as long as necessary to climb and always pay attention to other climbers on the wall
  • always check the gear present on the wall
  • make use of adequate securing gear after having learnt the correct use


Anyone who climbs, is aware of the risk inherent in the practice of this activity and accepts it.

Turn-by-turn directions

S. Antonio cliff is composed of a small dolomite amphitheatre dominated by a wide roof and it reminds the climers of old times. Most pitches are 20/25 meters and from the top of the wall you can enjoy a unique view of the lake, the village and the majestic Croz dell'Altissimo. Although S. Antonio is a cliff also suitable for less experienced climbers, it is advisable for everyone approaching this cliff to pay attention to the possible fall of rocks, given the steep slope and the Dolomitic rock's natuaral crumbliness.
