I climb max 6a, where do you suggest
I go? There
are 3 good areas: Cala Gonone, Masua
and Santa Maria Navarrese. All three
are by the sea.

the best easy crags in Sardinia? Budinetto,
La Poltrona and Margheddie at Cala
Gonone. Dorgali. Il Porto and Villaggio
Gallico at Santa Maria Navarrese,
Castello dell'Iride at Masua, Puerto
Escondido and Castilandia at Domusnovas,
Punta Pilocca around Iglesias.
3) I like nice
rock and easy routes, which are the
best places? Punta
Pilocca, Masua and La Poltrona. Castilandia
at Domusnovas and Villaggio Gallico
4) And crags
less well-known? At
Roccadoria, just south of Alghero,
there are quite a few easy routes.
In Ogliastra the Porto of Santa Maria
and the little crag at Seui. The Canyon
at Ulassai. At Cala Gonone Buchi Arta,
Sa Preta Istampata at Galtellì.
Near to Masua the new crag of Gutturu
5) Are there
crags suitable for kids’ climbing?
only ones bolted for this purpose
are at Cala Fuili (Cala Gonone) above
the stairs that go down to the beach
and at Domusnovas, at the entry to
and exit from the Grotta di San Giovanni.
6) Which is
the best crag for someone just starting

hearc of Masua, which is the best
doubt il Castello dell'Iride. Currently
the crag is off-limits, but climbing
8) At Cala Gonone,
which crags is it worth visiting?
Budinetto e La Poltrona, Buchi Arta,
which is kept a bit secret, Margheddie,
Dorgali, the beach at Cala Luna.
9) Is it worth
visting Ogliastra? At Isili are there
easy routes? Without
a doubt. Beyond the Baunei area, which
is quickly gaining popularity, at
Ulassai, Seui, and Villagrande there
are many easy routes. At Isili there
are few easy routes and they are not
very good. You need to be able to
climb 6a minimum.
10) I like the modern long routes,
6b max, which are the best ones?
doubt at Surtana, near Dorgali. Other
routes of this grade are at Buggerru,
Villacidro e Urzulei. All these other
routes need a higher grade but you
can second them if you can climb well
