Ogliastra is one of the most beautiful and famous regions in Sardinia for climbers.
It’s really a microcosm which can satisfy the most demanding climber, where it is possible to find anything you want, and mostly to climb during any season and with any weather condition, even in summer, that is traditionally considered unfavourable to practising free-climbing, the climber will find the freshness he wants after a quiet morning at the seaside , in the gorges of Ulassai and Osini.
In the calcareous mountains of Supramonte and in the Tacchi of Jerzu, originally two well distinguished poles, which have become as one and represent for climbers, too , a unique reality, the mythical Aguglia, symbol of climbing in Sardinia and maybe of the Mediterranean sea itself, the shields of delicately chiselled limestone of Jerzu, Ulassai and Osini, the crowded ‘falesie’ of the Gallic village of Baunei, the selective and dizzy walls of Punta Giradili.
Ogliastra ranks itself as the paradise of climbers who want to climb any kind of ground , from the blocks to great walls, without having to move for more than half an hour by car. A huge playland in the least polluted wilderness in Italy.
