Climbing Areas

Although the climbing area in Siniscola is not well-known among climbers, it offers nonetheless some very interesting routes. One of the most fascinating ones is certainly the overhanging strip called “Paretina per Lodè”, where the first route was bolted by the Trentine Bruno Pederiva, one of the pioneers of overhanging climbing in the Nuoro area. Later on, other climbers from Olbia equipped the routes on the slabs, whereas Giuseppe Garippa from Oliena dealt with the overhangs of the higher part of the wall. These consist of a series of nice pipe-like rock caves, and the climb is therefore characterised by continuity. Some fantastic routes, which really deserve to be repeated, are near some projects.

How to get there: from Siniscola take the road for Lodè and park as soon as you can (there is no parking area), after you pass the lower area, that offers about ten interesting throws along the side of the road. Climb up the slope until you reach some prickly pears you must overpass carefully, reaching the base of the cliff at its right end. The routes can be reached along a small path at the base of the rocks (10 minutes). Sun only in the afternoon, the wall faces the west.
