Marco Caboi, from
Nuoro, one of the Sardinian climbers
who recently reached the Olympus of
8a with grit and resolution… Unmistakable
for his thick head of hair, but mainly
for his mass of muscles, which can
maybe inspire fear, Marco is actually
a calm and modest boy, who has correctly
faced climbing, interpreting it as
a challenge in order to improve his
weak points and thus achieve goals
unthinkable at first sight...

The fact that I was not able to climb

What do you
love most in Sardinia ?
The silence, the sea and the hardness.
do you hate ?
The fact that some of us tend to waste
all this, but this problem concerns
some Sardinians, not Sardinia.
Would you like to live and climb somewhere
I would like to climb elsewhere, but
I wouldn’t know how to live anywhere
your opinion, Sardinian climbers are:
as all others, self-centred.
Do you like
the current concept of climbing ?
I have never liked the fact that some
don’t speak well of other people’s
opinions in order to state their own.
And what about competitions ?
I find they are fun and
help to solve small controversies.
Who goes up wins, who goes down looses,
simple and effective.
In the end,
what is climbing for you ?
I don’t know, I climb to discover
