5 out of 5 stars great

what a different experience. tons of weird fixed gear (blocks of wood with drilled holes, weird rusty nuts, three big fixed cams one after the other in the corner, huge single doorknocker things). i ended up leading "variante centrale" by getting a bit offroute around pitch 8, a safe but runout overhanging variation pitch. routefinding was a tad bit difficult from the topo, but it was a lot of fun! bring shoes but not via ferrata gear for the walk-off descent.

finally, be wary of the UIAA grades in Arco.. there are multiple conversion charts out there, and the crux pitches on this route felt more like old school 5.9 trad / new school 5.10a than anything lower.
