It’s always sunny in Sardinia
With amazing moderate sport climbs, warm coastal sunlight, pristine beaches and a laidback atmosphere, Sardinia is where you want to go to escape the winter blues. At any parking area near the seaside, you’re bound to see umbrellas being unloaded and coolers being filled with beverages. Above the sea are limestone walls and buttresses that go on into the horizon.
Sardinia was one of the first places in the Mediterranean where climbers would travel. Some of the first routes were opened over 70 years ago. More popular areas in the area are Kalymnos in Greece, Sicily in Italy and Mallorca in Spain, but everyone should make a trip to Sardinia at least once to explore the classics.
The most talked-about Sardinian climbs include the 150- metre Aguglia di Goloritzé tower, the steep caves at Isili and the five-pitch seaside climbs at Cala Gonone’s Millennium Cave. One of the countries hardest routes is called Hotel Supramonte, a 10- pitch 5.13d, and it’s found near Cala Gonone. Sardinia is a laid-back place where you can go with a group of friends, eat good food, go boating on rest days and
