Climbing in Villasimius
The beautiful and smooth granite of Capo Carbonara has seen a recent restyling, with the addition of new climbing problems.
After changing the anchoring points of the old 20 problems, M.Oviglia, A.Mannias and P.Contini, bolted almost 20 new routes. The crag is currently in perfect style and in a fine location to climb even during the summer.
It is a great location to test your smearing skills. All problems, including the easiest, require concentration and good balancing technique. For the hard core guys, try out the route Braille Trail, a smooth wall with microscopic holds (nails!!).
Avoid going there on hot days wetted by the humid Scirocco wind, it may become a very greasy and unpleasant experience!
The crag goes on shade after 3pm and its short distance from the parking lot (15 minutes walk).

Sept 2017 UPDATE
We've just been to the crag in Villasimius and noticed the bolts are already starting to rust. The material used -Stainless Steel 316- is showing clear signs of decay. Always pay attention to where and what you climb
