Deep Water soloing is nothing new. But combining multi-pitch climbing routes with the sea is a seldom thing. On Sardinia, Italys popular climbing island, you can start your multi-pitch route by boat.
South of Gala Caldone at Punta Plumare, an overhanging cliff, is located right at the sea. Charter a boat or book a Skipper to get to the entry.
Two routes are waiting to be climbed:
- Via Fedeli alla Linea: 15 pitches, 500 meters, 6c (6b obl.)
- Aria, 10 pitches, 350 meters, 8a+All in all a great adventure, from beginning to the end. Make sure, you are expirienced enough to find the right way through the rock jungle, once you entered one of these routes. The line is not always easy to find.

Btw: Another great multi-pitch route starting from a Kayak and a stepladder we recommend, is in Thailand on the tiny island Ko Lao Liang.
