About Climbing Sardinia
Climbing Sardinia is a non-agonist sport association entirely dedicated to mountain-related outdoor activities. It was created in 2012 by five local climbers and expanded to become a twenty members association after one year only.
Through climbing courses and other climbing activities we persevere in bringing people to the great Sardinian wilderness and enjoy its secrets. We love mountains and valleys and enormously respect their plants, animals and rocks. All we at Climbing Sardinia have developed a passion for all those sports that give us an opportunity to meet what lays out there, up there, hidden from the comfortable setting of the city, and so we can spend whole days climbing some breath-taking crags, such as Monte Oddeu, Bruncu Nieddu, or the off-limits Punta Giradili. We also walk for miles on mountain river beds, following their path down to the valley. Some days we have adventures walking on very remote mountain trails, where silence reigns and your eyes can gaze for miles and miles.

We will buy one young native tree for each person who participates to trekking with us. Trees will come from the Ente Foreste della Sardegna (Sardinia Forest Authority) which will advice and supervise on what, where, how and when to plant. We will collect bookings from October 2015 to September 2016.
For each climbing camp we will donate a new anchoring point
Anchoring points will be donated to re-bolt existing sport routes and multi-pitches. We will only buy stainless-steel and weather resistant kits suitable to sea cliffs.
We are in touch with a series of local climbers who have spent their own money in the last years to create new problems and fix existing ones. They are doing this because of their great passion and not for money or fame.
Regardless how much we care, all our activities can potentially pollute the environment where we operate. This is why we at Climbing Sardinia have elaborated various solutions to prevent or limit our impact and carbon footprint.
Our largest contribute towards gas pollution comes from the automobiles we use for our transfers. To compensate at least partially to this effect we have worked out a few solutions:
- The more we are sitting in a car, the less we’re polluting! Each empty seat has a chance to increase the number of running engines, this is why we try to fill up our cars and use them as little as possible.
- The nearest the better! After a day spent climbing, eating becomes an absolute priority. Let’s have a look around and we’ll surely find some hidden gastronomic pearls. Our friends shepherds often offer their products at very affordable prices. What best opportunity to have a taste of some homemade sausages and cheeses, season fruit and vegetables, and sip the best wines of the region?
- On each page dedicated to Sport Climbing in Sardinia you can find our recommendec Campings and B&Bs. We always try to find a place to sleep to be the closest possible to our climbing areas. Other requisites obviously include cheap prices and a friendly management.
- Soon enough Climbing Sardinia will have reusable water bottles to give out to all members. No worries in regards to where to fill them up, you can rely on a free advice from some of the most experienced spring water drinkers.
- When we are out climbing there must be no screaming. Full stop. Climbers often risk disturbing nesting birds and sometimes some even end up bothering big rapacious birds. This is often the case when climbing a north-facing crag. We can and must limit our impact by carefully choosing where to climb, paying attention to the presence of nests or birds flying nervously over our heads..
