Sport Climbing

From Sandhurst to Sardinia

Pembroke Sea Cliffs and Sport Climbing in Sardinia

Bit of a non stop couple of weeks, starting with a week’s work at the MOD Adventure Training Unit in Pembrokeshire where I had five days instructing five Army Trainee Officers in the delights of rock climbing. Luckily all candidates were super keen and lapped up sea cliff climbing - as I wasn’t shouting at them all of the time… Then straight from work, it was on to Bristol and a horrid multiple stage journey through the night, that eventually landed me at the airport arrivals area of Olbia in Sardinia. Quickly hooking up with four  clients who all looked a lot brighter than I felt. We jumped into our hire wagon and drove off to Cala Gonone. We checked into our apartment and with bags unpacked it was straight out for an evening’s cragging. A cool week of sport climbing commenced and It was great to get out and explore some of Sardinia’s quality crags and escape the UK while “return to winter” came back home. Well done guys and girls on all of your efforts, it was a cool couple of weeks!
