Discovery with us the beauty of Sardinia combining together climbing and sailing. We
choose the remote island of San Pietro because it is quiet, uncontaminated and rich in
culture. During the week long cruise we will sail in the archipelagos of Sulcis exploring
miles of coastlines and islands in search of cliffs and crags where to stop and climb. On
our way we will encounter basalt crags and limestone cliffs with some astonishing climbing
routes; some of them will be bolted, others will have to be climbed “trad” placing nuts and
friends on your way up.
