/ Sardinia this September/October
expect the hire car to get vegatation scratches... the car hire tried to charge us but they let us off in the end.
main roads are easy to follow and in good condition. just expect the toad to cala gonone to be full of hair pin turns. the roads to crags can sone time be a little worse for wear.
eat the pig dish at snoopys its great.
ignore the boat ride to cala luna. its easy to walk to.
wrote this on phone at work so probably full of typos
It's really warm there in September. Was there a few years back in early september, the hotel didn't have aircon and the temperature didn't go below 23 celcius during nights...
I've only climbed in few places in Cala Gonone but there's stuff for every taste. It's an old location so expect a lot of polished routes (also because of the sea). If you are climbing 6c, I do not suggest you go trying Cala Goloritze, that thing is pretty intimidating and grades are stiff.

One advantage of the Pietra di Luna guide is that it tells you when the route was bolted, so you can apply the UIAA "up to 3 years probably OK" rule.
On the other hand: recently stances have been renewed at Buchi Arta, so better than guidebook suggests. For your grade you would have fun there.
