Banana Republic  PDF

The crag Banana Republic has two opposite sectors, one with climbing hard on overhanging rock, the other on gray slabs with easier grades (from the pitches 14 to 22). Look at the gallery to discover this exciting sector.

Approach:

From Iglesias go to Masua (Nebida), at the crossroad of Masua and Buggerru, you should follow for Buggerru. Just before the turning for Cala Domestica turn right onto a dirt road. After about 2.5 km from the beginning of the dirt road you reach the sector Istentales (throat becomes narrower, and the left pitches depart directly from the street). Go up a short uphill untill you arrive at the crag “Piccolo Canyon”, just visible above the road on the left. Continue over until you get to the crag of Marangigio that you can recognize from the large open space at the base of the sector and the fig tree which is in the middle of the wall. It ‘s better to park 10 meters after the crag. Just going beyond this area you can reach the crag of Banana Republic recognizable from the wall smooth and striated on one side and gray slabs that start directly from the street on the other.
