Climbing Courses

BEGINNERS ROCK CLIMBING COURSES

Our climbing courses are suited to all those who started climbing indoors and have little experience outdoor but want to improve rock climbing skills.

OUtdoor climbing courses can last from 1 to 6 days. Our qualified IFMGA Mountain Guides demonstrate techniques and theory on location, practising what you need directly on the rock. Some call it Kinaesthetic learning, we believe that an introduction to climbing should be fun, practical and carried out in a safe and awesome location. Therefore we meet by the better-equipped and most-panoramic crags in Sardinia, living you wonder why you didn’t start before.

Although Sardinia is a big island and there are hundreds of climbing locations, we concentrate our courses in the area of Cala Gonone. There are many reasons for this: there are dozens of easy and well-equipped crags, they are easy to reach, go in the shade in the afternoon (making it possible to climb in the summertime too) and …they are beautiful!

For all our courses we provide all climbing equipment -excluding climbing shoes- so that you do not need to buy any item, making rookie mistakes that we’ll cover during the course.

 

ADVANCED CLIMBING COURSES

All our advanced climbing courses are tailored to attendees’ previous experiences. Our Guide will examine current practices and take them as starting point, correcting bad habits and helping to develop a better understanding of balancing, vertical progression, resting, breathing, rigging, rappelling techniques and emergency manoeuvres.

ROCK CLIMBING COURSES

Base outdoor rock climbing courses are aimed at those who have never climbed before or have only indoor experience. We teach all safety and help build confidence with outdoor climbing.

A course lasts from two to five days, depending on your previous skills. It starts from the basic safety manoeuvres such as belaying and knots. As the course progresses, we will step up to lead-climbing and anchoring techniques

 

Where: Cala Gonone, Ulassai and other locations
When: all year
Group size: from 1 to 4 people per instructor

MULTI-PITCH COURSES

We trust that climbing multi-pitches is the best way to understand the true nature of Climbing.

Our Multipitch Climbing Courses will teach you all the necessary knowledge needed to enjoy climbing safely on bolted multi-pitches. From the best practices in belaying leading and second climber to threading anchoring points, you will learn all the pros and cons of various techniques.

A real multi-pitch course should always include emergency manoeuvres. Once you are up there you can only count on your skills. That is why we include emergency retreats and different abseiling techniques.

Full multi-pitch climbing courses last up to 4 days, we will take you through the whole process of becoming an independent climber.

Where: Cala Gonone / Supramonte / Baunei
When: all year
Group size: from 1 to 2 people per guide

Cancellation

One-day activities: after the €49 deposit was paid, cancellations can be rescheduled within the current or next season.
