Explore Sardinia, a fantastic island in the Mediterranean Sea
Reach the summit of Pedra Longa, a majestic Spire in Sardinia
Tackle one of the best routes in Pedra Longa, Marinaio di Foresta
Sardinia is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, with an area of 24,100 kilometers. And it is the second biggest one, right after Sicily. Moreover, this enchanting island is a true gem. As it is a beautiful place rich in history, with great cultural significance, and of course superb rock climbing options.
Within Sardinia, one of the places rock climbers seek the most is Pedra Longa. This imposing Spire rises above the dazzling sea of Baunei. And it offers mesmerizing sceneries of the area. As it combines the best rock quality and the most hypnotizing views of the ocean. So, the higher we ascend, the better views we will get!
Moreover, the area offers different climbing options and routes. The path I propose, Marinaio de Foresta, has 7 pitches of about 190 meters. And it consists of a diagonal course, with the maximum level of difficulty rated 6a+. The route begins right at the beach, almost touching the ocean. And it ends on the other side, after short climbing patches and some doubles.
Therefore, if you are an expert who is looking to reach higher goals, there are spots we can tackle, that will definitely challenge your skills. But, if you are just a beginner or an intermediate climber, who just wishes to gain confidence and improve your techniques, I know exactly the spots to take you to.
So don’t miss this amazing opportunity and join me on this wonderful rock climbing trip in Sardinia. Come with me to reach the top of Pedra Longa, on the Marinaio di Foresta route.

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.
In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.

Really enjoyed the Pan Di Zucchero, perfect for beginner climbing like myself. Marco was a great guide, lovely to chat too and I felt really safe during the climb.
Marco is a perfect climbing guide. He takes maximum care of his guest. I felt absolutely safe all the time. He knows the local area best and finds always shadowy routes which was very important at this time 34°C.
The multipitch we did at Pan di Zucchero with Marco was fantastic. A great spot to climb, with amazing views. Marco was also a great guide – friendly, experienced, and willing to pick us up from our accommodation which was very helpful.
