This section of the board has been dormant for a few weeks, so here are some pics from my honeymoon in sardinia (off the coast of Italy).

These are the crags within a couple kilometers(or meters in some cases) of town:

Image
Cala Fuili, this gorge actually has about a dozen crags in it, this is just one of the walls.


Image

Bidderscotai: Awesome climbing in a giant cave right next to the sea the crag actually extends quite far on either side of the cave as well.

Image

Budinetto, awesome slabby ampitheater


Image

La Poltrona, an even better slabby limestone crag. Awesome technical climbing, some routes with move actually above bolts :shocked:

Image

Cala Luna - supposedly awesome hard sport climbing, although we only went to the beach. This crag is typically accessed by boat cruise, although one could hike in to save money.

Image
Aigulle Goloritze, supposedly one of the finest outings in all of Italy. I definitely would have loved to have climbed, but at least it makes a good excuse to go back. A gorgeous formation with obligaory 5.10 on its easiest routes.

Image
Hotel Supramonte in Goruppa, we went for a hike to this 400m gorge and were lucky enough to see some people working on this route. Supposedly the hardest long route in Italy as of 2002. 4 pitches harder than 8a up to 8b+. Had seen only 6 ascents as of the guidebook printing.

Now for pictures of us enjoying the rock

Image
Sam at Bidderscotai

Me at La Poltrona

Me again at la poltrona

Sam on a nice arete at Cala Fuili

Me on a route put up by Lynn Hill at Cala Fuili. An austrian told me she did the FA unroped. Pretty crazy considering it is 6b. The bolts are spaced far enough to make it a exciting. There is also an awesome view out to the see to your left as you climb.

Image

One of the most fun climbs all trip. Awesome moves on perfect limestone.

Image
Climbing on our first day at Cala Fuili. These climbs were way overbolted, but still pretty fun.

Image
Me goofing around on a perfect polished limestone handcrack in the Goruppa gorge. All that sport climbing had me in hand jam withdrawl so it was nice to feed the habit for a few minutes.

I'd imagine that geologically the two islands are pretty similar? Although I'm sure culturally they are dramatically different. How was the climbing in Corsica?

We really didn't climb that much, just a few hours every other day or so. Nonetheless, she is a very fine wife. Marriage is often about compromise i suppose, but every now and then you can find a perfectly amiccable solution. Sam wanted to hang out at the beach, I wanted to climb the whole honeymoon. I'd say we arrived at a happy median and both enjoyed every minute of it.
