Multipitch climbing courses

We believe that climbing multi-pitches is the best way to understand the true nature of Climbing. There are almost 1000 multi-pitches Sardinia, many of which are bolted on sea crags and can reach 400 meters of height.

Our Multipitch Climbing Courses will teach you all the necessary knowledge needed to enjoy safely all bolted multi-pitches. From the best practice in belaying the first and second to threading anchoring points and various abseiling techniques, we will take you through the whole process towards becoming an all-round climber.

Prior to start a Multipitch Climbing course it is important to have a decent experience in lead climbing. You should also have a good understanding of belaying a lead climber, the course will concentrate on more important things if you have already covered the basics yourself.

You will need to have your own climbing shoes and a rucksack (40 liters minimum) to help carrying the equipment to the crag.

You should be wearing appropriate clothing to the specific season and climbing location. Wear good trainers and no open shoes. You should have some light snacks, water and personal items.
