Rock Climbing at Rocca Pendice, A Wall For All Climbers

Are you an experienced climber? Or are you a beginner looking for some easy routes to climb? Either way, you are in the right place: the Euganean Hills around Abano and Montegrotto Terme have plenty to offer for anyone looking to go rock climbing.

We will focus on Rocca Pendice, a simple wall suitable for any climber.

 Sport climbing in Veneto: Rocca Pendice

 In Castelnuovo di Teolo, near Padua, on Monte Pendice (304 m), there is an imposing rockface known as Rocca Pendice which can be reached on foot from the sports ground in Teolo. It is possible to climb this wall at any time of the year, with the exception of the peregrine falcon nesting period.

A climbing wall for more than 100 years

For locals and visitors, Rocca Pendice is an historic climbing wall which has been used since the dawn of free climbing in Veneto.

It is made up of several sections of trachyte, an igneous rock of volcanic origin, porous and compact.

Climbing at Rocca Pendice is fun and enjoyable thanks to this unusual rock, which makes it a favourite destination for beginners and for more experienced climbers who want to try some of the routes in the beautiful countryside of the Euganean Hills.

 Are you ready to go climbing at Rocca Pendice?
We promise you that you will enjoy this wonderful experience and will not regret choosing this sport during your active holiday in this part of Italy, in the land of the Euganean Spa Towns.

And what about other sports in Veneto?
For example, here are some of the mountain bike routes in the Euganean Hills.
