Just back from 2 weeks trip on mediteranian island Sardegnia.I first visited this island 15 years ago and then somehow forgot abaut it.This year I couldn“t ressist the promisses of good weather and famous sardinian „pietra di luna“.
After all day walking arround Capo testa and looking for something to climb(without guidebook) I saw this striking line on last rays of sunlight disapearing into the sea.Don“t knowing the name or the difficulty we started climbing on sharp granite of Capo and we ended in the dark on summit.
We moved to the village Ulassai which is guarded by walls made of some of the best limestone I climbed on.
Lo sciale della luna,Ulassai Torre dei Venti
3 Colors and textures of rock in Ulassai are simply mindblowing.Story behind Liz is just misreading guidebook and by mistake starting it instead MDF.The route has it all.Overhanging start,dyno,fingerjam,slab and long moves in roof for finish.

Words of Maurizio from guidebook : „..appeared like a rabbit out of a magicians hat, a hidden wall, not visible from any side of the road, an enchanted crag, a grey wall of incomparable beauty.“
