Rock Climbing In Sardinia

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, and its location generally guarantees it receives an average of 135 days per year of sunshine.

It’s craggy coastline, which stretches 1,850km, and the abundance of rock in the center of the island, makes for a perfect rock climbing venue. The island has hundreds of single and multi pitch climbs, ranging from grade 3 up to 8b! So there is something for everyone. Mostly the routes are bolted, but there are plenty of traditional climbs together with some great bouldering.

Sardinia really is a fantastic venue for people wanting to get away from it all, and would be a great first time overseas rock climbing holiday, or if your like me a multiple visitor to the island, it just always has something to offer no matter how often you visit.
It has fantastic beaches, great sea, reasonably priced food and drink and friendly locals.

Our Accommodation

We stay over on the east coast in the town of Cala Gonone, which with it’s small harbour, nearby beaches, cafes, bars and restaurants, makes for an ideal base.
The accommodation that I use is owned and run by a small local family, they are really friendly people and will give you a warm welcome. The apartments have cooking facilities if you’d prefer to do that, and most have a balcony overlooking the sea.
If you prefer you can book your own apartment/hotel just let me know prior to booking.

Equipment

We provide ropes and climbing hardware for the trip. It is recommended that you have your own helmet, harness and especially your own rock shoes, as these are so personal to your feet, and wearing other people’s shoes isn’t the best. Get in touch to ask about any of the items if you are unsure, we can lend harnesses and helmets if needs be.
You are expected to bring your own personal clothing, and if you would like to bring any climbing equipment along to try then please feel free.

Travel

Cheap flights are available with Ryanair from Stansted and Liverpool and other flights may be available, but the airport to get to is Alghero. You should book your flight to arrive no later than 4pm.
Transport will be provided whilst in Sardinia to get to and from the airport, and to get us around the climbing venues. Please book return flights to depart after 11am.

Fitness & Experience

The trip would be ideally suited to beginners through to improvers, and would suit people who may have climbed indoors but would now like to progress outdoors, for people wanting to push their grade and maybe try to lead climb on bolts or traditional equipment then this would be for you. You don’t by no means have to be an athlete! But a small amount of core fitness would help you on the trip, and would recommend you to go to an indoor climbing wall a few times prior to the trip.
