is a little village in the centre of Sardinia and is famous for its
very beautiful carpets. There is a charming little valley with the ruins
of an old castle- the Castle of Medusa not far from the village. Climbers
had noticed the calcareous walls, which surrounded the castle long time
before, but nobody felt like beginning to put pitons on something.
Marino, who came from Isili, was the first one who thought at it: he
was able to involve the local government of Samugheo, which assigned
the task of pitoning some routes to Simone Sarti.
Marco Bussu from Oristano was parallelly bolting the area near the river,
downstream: he had called that zone
“l’oratorio” (“the oratory”).
entire area looked very interesting and the limestone was very beautiful
and rich of concretion. But the work stopped only a year after and the
area has remained as it was: it has a lot of potentialities but little
resources to go on with the bolting activities.
the beauty of the places and of the walls it would be necessary to find
an easier access, as the trail is very steep and subject to landslides,
while the longer one requires more than half an hour to go back to the
kind of difficulties wouldn’t be insurmountable with the help of the
town council, which would that way make the final effort to relaunch
a new and very beautiful area for climbing; that zone hasn’t been discovered
by climbers yet.
