Viaje de los Locos– a spectacular line in Gorropu canyon, Sardegna. An artistic line of tufas opened by Dani Andrada and climbed by Edu Marin and Sasha Digiulian at 8b+ max. You may know where, because it’s often overlooked by its famous neighbour Hotel Supramonte 8b!
In April Adrien and I arrived in one of the wettest springs on record. How do I type a face palm emoji?! Our objective was completely wet, constantly seeping on the opening tufa pitches. Well, to have Hotel Supramonte as a consolation is not so bad, too! We began preparing and practising on the climb. Really amazing to be up high in the canyon and have truly amazing stone to climb on, and really you must climb between those bolts! After two weeks of hot weather with rain days spent cooking and eating, and of course sampling the cannonau, ultimately Adrien left early. Too rainy, unclimbable!
With my good buddy Valter on board to support, we persevered, but in early May it rained for 8 days straight. The canyon was a river, and we were prohibited from entering for a few days. The wall was a dripping mess. It was not to be. A wet day cleaning my quickdraws and thankfully a few nice photos, but it was time to leave…but where to?
Northern Italy! I met a boy :)
