beautiful ones in Sardinia and has recently
become famous for its climbing routes also.
first route has been opened in a traditional
style in 1980 by Marco Bernardi; some other
followed that one, opened in the same style
by Corrado Pibiri. Maurizio Oviglia and
Antonello Pala opened 'I sogni di Sara'
(“Sara’s dreams”) in 1995: bolts have been
placed in the gorge but at very high distances.
hard routes followed from that moment on
(like Hotel Supramonte, the hardest in Italy)
or very exposed routes (like the recent

and Lorenzo Nadali, from Bologna realised
it: he opened that little route of five
pitches in the summer 2000; this one is
a little jewel for its difficulty.
will especially remember the enchanting

Gorges, in addition to the climbing.
You will find yourselves hanged over the
big Canyon loop which stands not far from
the incredible wall of Punta Cocuttos, from
where the Hotel Supramonte rises.
Well it’s an experience which cannot be

at acceptable distances, just a little longer
than on the cliff.
