Sardinia: important FFAs and Xmas Lemon House opening

Posted by Peter, The Lemon House
Wednesday 26th August 2009

We developed the Su Telargiu Oro cave so we had steep (and very steep) climbing for the summer 45 minutes from The Lemon House, and the cave's development has seen a big step forward in August with 3 more FFAs: Tagliole 7b, The Prestige 7b+/7c, and Warm-Up 8a+. So now there are a 6b and 6c to warm-up, a 6c+, two 7a's, two 7b's, a 7b+/7c, an 8a, an 8a+, and a 8b+/8c with 5 routes still to free between 7c+ and 9(?). In the autumn we shall bolt 4-5 other lines to the right of the Muro Stendahl, to have (we hope) more routes up to 7b-ish. See topos here.

August, the peak Italian holiday season, hasn't even finished and at The Lemon House we have our first bookings for the period from 26 December into the start of January, as well as in our apartment for the end of November / start of December. We shall be closed for Christmas itself. Getting to Sardinia is easy all year round with the Easyjet flight 3x/week from Luton to Cagliari, the best one for getting to us, as well as the Ryanair flight to Alghero, also 3x/week. We'll have a great New Year celebration with our guests at a local restaurant!
