Bouldering in Cornus

Bouldering in Cornus

The small sector Cornus was opened in 2006 by local climber Filippo Canu and has remained a small and unnoticed bouldering sector. Filippo opened a number of boulders and also bolted a higher basal crag, all known under the name of Hotel Cornus. These boulders are located in a fresh wood not far from the see. Being one of the few bouldering sectors in Sardinia to be shaded by a wood makes it very attractive in summer months. Add the the fact that the superb Deep Water Soloing area of S'Archittu is only 5 kilometers away and you get the perfect summer bouldering plan! Bouldering on basalt in the morning and DWS in the afternoon (or vice-versa), I couldn't ask for more!

Just to add to what was already good, Tore Vacca has equipped in 2013 a new sport sector, increasing the existing number of bolted routes. The problems are very short, we're talking of 8 to 14 meters, but difficulties range mostly between the high 5 and low 6 grades.

This sectors are located on a PRIVATE LAND. The owner allows local climbers to access the areas. If visiting pay attention not to leave any garbage or disturb cattle or other animals.
