our locations

Cala Gonone

There are so many equipped crags in Cala Gonone to satisfy both first-time beginners and full-fledged rock climbers. From leaning slabs to overhanging tufas, Cala Gonone is home to 54 climbing sectors, for a total of over 1,100 equipped climbing routes. Add the sea and the typical dishes of Sardinian cuisine and you conjure the best climbing destination in Europe. Where else can you combine all these factors in such a safe and friendly environment?

Baunei

The climbing sectors in Baunei are known to be some of the best and most challenging in Sardinia. Mostly famous for its extreme multi-pitches, it also has some crags for beginners, including the famous Pedra Longa.

Ulassai

During the last 10 years, Ulassai has become one of the biggest outdoor climbing hubs in Sardinia. The large vertical walls over Ulassai are equipped with hundreds of routes extending from 25 to 40 meters in height. Between Ulassai and the neighbouring town of Jerzu, there are now 25 climbing sectors. It is a place where to relax and prove one’s skills to top up new challenges.

Monteleone Rocca Doria

The tiny village of Monteleone Rocca Doria, located at a short distance from Alghero, has one of the best climbing walls in Sardina. There are over 100 climbing routes in Monteleone, stacked on a 300-meter-long wall. The average height is 30 meters, with plenty of easy routes ranging from 5a to 6b. Furthermore, the crag is located above Lake Temo and benefits from a superb panorama over the waters and the surrounding hills. 

Monte Tuvu

One of the few equipped crags in the north-east of Sardinia is Monte Tuvu, located at s short distance from Arzachena and Costa Smeralda. Although it’s not as large as the locations mentioned above, Monte Tuvu has many winning cards on its sleeve. Thanks to its exposition and the fresh breeze it gets from the sea, it is one of the few climbing sectors we can enjoy in the summer.

What happens in case of bad weather?

In case of bad weather, our guide will try to find an alternative destination. Sometimes it rains in Cala Gonone while it’s sunny in Baunei…

Depending on your and the guide’s schedule, we may also try to anticipate or postpone your climbing day.

In case it’s not possible to move the date or to find an alternative destination, we shall keep your deposit as a voucher for a future booking. This must be spent within 18 months from your initial booking date.

What's the best time for climbing in Sardinia?
Autumn, Spring and Winter are the best seasons as they have the perfect temperatures to climb most of the crags in Sardinia.

There are of course some crags that can be climbed only in the summer, but the vast majority are best to be climbed when temperatures are not higher than 25° C.

April to June and September to November are surely the best time ranges for climbing any crag in Sardinia.

Is it possible to climb during the summer?
Yes, of course! You just need to know which crags are on shade and when ?

Our guides know where to climb even during the hottest summer days, allowing you to enjoy climbing on a shady wall. As mentioned above, many routes won’t be available as many crags are exposed to the south. Anyhow, many other crags will be in shade either in the morning or in the afternoon.

At what time do we meet the guide?

Your climbing day lasts about 6 hours and you can choose whether to start early morning or soon after lunch.

Choosing early morning means meeting the guide at 7 am and climbing on a shady crag until the sun hits it at about 1 pm.

If you choose to climb in the afternoon you will meet the guide at 2 pm, and reach the crag as the shade arrives, climbing until sunset (8 pm approx)

How many people can participate?
Each guide can look after 4 people max. 

We do not form groups, each booking is for a guide in exclusive.

The cost of your booking is always €299, whether you book for yourself only or share it with up to 3 friends.

What should I have?
It is enough to have your climbing shoes. Our guide will have all the necessary equipment. If you already own a harness and a helmet you can use them, as long as they are type-tested and in a good shape.

Please bring some food (sandwich, fruit, nuts, energy bars or similar) and 2 litres of water.
