Ulassai — The climbing paradise

This small village is well known in the climbing community and still took me 7 months to come to visit 🙈. It is fine, better later than never.

It is located around 70 kilometres from Cagliari, it is a place where one can climbing all day long for the whole year.

In the short stay I managed to visit only 3 crags, so almost nothing, comparing with there is around.

The most known and visited place is the Canyon which offers good routes for all levels.

I’ve never visited a place with so many people climbing, and stepping foot into that place I saw passionate climbers working on routes from varying levels. It was a nice experience that left an indelible impression on me. It is a world pulsating with energy and determination, where passion is intertwined with skill. Climbers with different abilities push their limits striving for personal triumphs.

This first encounter with such a diverse and dedicated climbing community awakened a newfound appreciation for the sport and its ability to unite people in pursuit of a shared passion.

The canyon creates a shadow all day long and that makes the place a good spot to climb even in the summer.

The other 2 crags that I visited were Baccili and Torre dei venti, that are also nice spots really, easy to reach, but they are much smaller than the canyon.

Ulassai is situated in a beautiful zone, and in the neighborhood there are other amazing spots for climbing or for a tracking in the nature. So plan to visit and stay a couple of days in Baunei that is 50Km far from Ulassai.
