Aguglia di Goloritzè

By: Nicholas Hobley
Country: Italy, Region: Sardinia, Town: Baunei (Ogliastra)

The massive free-standing Aguglia towers high above Cala Goloritzè, one of Sardinia's most beautiful bays. Its Verdonesque limestone walls offer unparalleled technical slab climbing in fantastic surroundings - a must!

GETTING THERE

Follow the SS125 from Cala Gonone to Baunei and turn left shortly before entering the village proper (sign for Ristorante del Golgo). Continue steeply uphill and then descend onto a plateau. Continue for approx. 10km to a sign for Ristorante del Golgo - turn right immediately afterwards and follow the dirt track to its very end (small opening for cars to park). From here an obvious path leads first uphill then gently downhill in about an hour down to the beach and the Aguglia di Goloritzè.

THE CLIMBING

Technical slab climbing.

FOOD AND ACCOMODATION

Wild camping is strictly prohibited in the National Park, but the municipal campsite in Cala Gonone is prohibitively expensive! Rooms or apartments can easily be found by asking around - expect to pay between 15-20 euro/head. There are small supermarkets in Cala Gonone and Baunei, while to the north of Olbia there is an enormous out-of-town shopping mall.

NOTES

Getting to Sardinia
By plane: fly to Cagliari, Olbia or Alghero and then hire a car.

By car: take one of the numerous ferries from Genova, Livorno, Rome or Naples to Olbia. From Olbia take the highways SS125 and SS131 southwards towards Nuoro. Exit before Nuoro following signs to Dorgali. Shortly after this town a signposted road leads left through a tunnel down to Cala Gonone (approx. 100km, 1.5 hrs).
Baunei is reached via the winding SS125 from Dorgagli in about an hour (50km).
