MONTEZUMA (Cagliari)

MONTEZUMA (Rocca Gommai)

Montezuma is a new cliff not far from the Giants' Tomb of Is Concias (Quartucciu), therefore very close to the metropolitan area of ​​Cagliari (25 km from Cagliari). 
The wall is made of high quality granite, almost always clean and well equipped with bolts. Although in granite style, climbing is not far from the limestone style, 
or at least less distant than the other structures in the Sarrabus area (Garibaldi, Castello Arxiolu, Placca del Frate).

The first explorations of the wall are due to Matteo Casula, while the first bolts date back to 2019 at the hands of Simone Desogus. 
In May 2020, after the lock down relating to the Corona Virus, Simone Desogus himself, helped by Maurizio Oviglia and Gianluca Piras, 
began to systematically enhance the cliff. In just one month of bolting, many routes were born, all of excellent quality. 
Montezuma is confirmed as one of the most interesting Sardinian climbing news, at least as far as granite is concerned.

Access: From Cagliari follow the SS125 towards Olbia. At km 20, after the Diverland Water Park, turn right and after a short time again right uphill. 
Follow the narrow asphalt road for a few kilometers. Go past the Paradiso waterfall and then the Tomba dei Giganti of Is Concias, then the church of Santu Pedru Paradiso. 
After a hairpin bend, a long straight uphill follows. Park on the roadside next to some little cairns. Follow the path that leads to the cliff in 10 minutes.

Notes: in the shade in the morning. In the afternoon it is possible to climb in the shade in the canyon. 
The crag is located at 550 meters above sea level, the panorama of the city and the natural environment is remarkable.

Bolting: all the material on the wall is of excellent quality. The crag was self-financed by the equippers.
