Climbing on Supramonte

Multi-pitch routes and baseclimbs at the seafront, cappuccino and sun – what else are you looking for?


Let’s see where it is:

Best time of the year:

End of April offers perfect temperatures (it is not too hot), rarely rainfall and plenty of daylight. It is also still pleasantly quiet in off-season.


There is a sufficient number of routes for all levels, most routes are in between French 6a – 7b.

Route equipment:

The drilled climbing areas are mostly in good conditions. The protection of many routes can easily complemented with a set of Stoppers and a few midsize Camalots. Beside the drilled routes there are also plenty of routes for clean trad climbing.

Climbing gear:

60 m double rope (for baseclimbs 70 m single rope), 12 – 14 quickdraws (longer quickdraws are advantageous), some slings


The latest editions of both climbing guidebooks “Pietra di Luna Crags” and “Pietra di Luna Trad & Multipitches” have to be treated with caution. Especially directions and distances are often fundamentally wrong. This should be kept in mind for your daily planning and timetable.

Highlights of multi-pitch routes:

Surtana canyon:
The Sound of Silence (6a, 5 pitches, 140 m)
Take Five (6a+, 5 pitches, 140 m)
Aguglia di Goloritzè/Punta Caroddi:
Easy Gymnopedie (6b, 5 pitches, 140 m)

Spiaghia Est: Porto io i Nuts/Lynn Hill (6a+)
