Description 

This crag is under the old stone tower that sits atop the wall like a sentinel. The wall is punctuated by a large, south facing grotta. The walls outside the cave are south and west facing while the cave sees more than its share of shade. A lot of sharp climbing here but the routes are quality and worth the sore fingertips, however the rock in the grotta is smooth, pocketed, and filled with fun tuffas. 24 Routes between 5.8 and .12d.
The grades are moderate and the limestone is excellent so Torre Isulidda attracts the crowds.

Getting There 

Turn off the HWY at the El Bahira exit, drive down the road for a 1/4 mile and look for the sign and small parking area on the right. The tower at the top of the cliff is a great marker. A short 2 minute approach will bring you to the crag.

Celestial Way of the Dead Cows 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  Europe : Italy : ... : Torre Isulidda
A classic route that seems so improbable for the grade. Climb the popcorn tuffas on the right to the roof, then move left under the roof to the apex of the cave. Cross to the left wall and exit onto the headwall. A bit of rope drag so lengthen the clips through the transitions of walls.Even if this grade is beneath you, get on it and enjoy....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
