10 easy multipitches near Gorroppu

Nearly everyone in Sardinia knows of the Gorroppu, the enormous gorge with extremely hard and overhanging multipitches. Unfortunately though, the Gorroppu is famuous for the really hard multipitches and not to be an accessible territory for the many.  We want to prove that this isn’t the case, and also we common mortals (those who get […]

6 Best Alternatives to the Aguglia in Cala Goloritze

Punta Caroddi (aka “La Guglia” or “The Needle”) in Cala Goloritze is a great climb, that is sure, it has a fantastic view, that’s true, and the beach below is a unique spot in the Mediterranean, that’s unquestionable.  Anyhow…. in our opinion, Cala Goloritze has become a little bit “too popular”. The tiny beach, once […]

(Another) Warning for Sea-side Corrosion

This video was shot by Gianluca Piras (one of Sardinian most active climbers and bolters) in January 2017 on the main crag in Masua.

Corrosion affects all stainless steel bolts but, on sea-side and south-facing crags the process is accelerated by heath, […]
