climbing has recently discovered this large area in Osilo, which locals
had already visited about ten years ago; at that time, they only prepared
some belays, waiting for future possible projects. During year 2000 I
arrived there, and started to estimate the rock, making it accessible
and easy to approach from the bottom. With my friend Davide Berluti, I
started to open the first routes, followed by some local equippers and
some guests, creating 25 pitches from 5b to 7a+, mainly vertical slabs
and leaning, plus some overhangs. The routes, all equipped with resine
bolts and chains at belays, are 7 to 30 metres long. The climb is suitable
for everybody, great for beginners and pleasant for experienced climbers.
The Wall is near the towns and is located in a beautiful area. It is developing,
it still has so much to offer, and it has quickly become the reference
cliff for local climbers and a great stop for visitors.
to get there:
From Sassari, turn towards Osilo and take the new road, leaving the old
one on your right. After 3,5 km along the new road, follow a small paved
road on the left, that goes straight on for 500m, then turn left on another
small road that crosses the railroad with a bend. Follow the road, go
down and continue towards the visible cliff (on the right), until you
park in a meadow that stretches on its left side. Follow a steep path
on the W ridge, which will lead you to the rocks’ base (10 minutes).
