THE ULASSAI CANYON

The Canyon is a new sector just above the town of Ulassai, probably the town with the greatest number of walls in Sardinia. The wall was discovered by Simone Sarti and Vlady Selis, who began to bolt it in November 2002.
The last 7 routes have been bolted by Maurizio Oviglia. All the routes have been sponsored by the Ulassai Pro Loco, in a farsighted project meant to exploit their beautiful walls.
The Canyon is an ideal sector in the summer, with an incredible (for Sardinia) grassy glade with pines at the foot of the first routes! Climbs are very nice, the style is half way between Jerzu and Osini (just like Ulassai from a geographic point of view).
There are beautiful cracks, but also classical walls which somehow recall Jerzu. The equippers wish to thank Tonino, from Hotel Su Marmuri, for his gentle hospitality.
Remember that Tonino has special rates for climbers (tel. 0782-79003-79665) and offers excellent dinners based on local animals cooked on the fire...not ideal for vegetarians!
Access: park near the Church and locate the Canyon, just above. Take a small, winding road, then leave it (green signs) and follow a short track until you reach the enatrance to the Canyon (5 minutes)
