Almos all the Sardinian coast is SIC, Site of Community Importance.
You can see the SIC areas in the:
This means You can not modify that places, in no way, bolting included.
To bolt in SIC area is criminal offense.
Then, every local Municipality, after Sardegna Region (supervisor of Sic areas) authorization, can modify sic rules, in its own way.
Baunei Municipality, for example, with this local law, if you ask them, allows new routes bolting:
“ Per l’apertura di nuove vie di arrampicata con il sistema della chiodatura, con l’utilizzo di protezioni fisse., è necessario informare preventivamente il Comune (To bolt new climbing routes with the bolting system, with fixed protections, You must inform the Municipality in advance)”.
Dorgali Municipality has no similar law, so, if you ask authorization to Dorgali Municipality to bolt new routes, it’s quite difficult, if not impossible, they give it.
At the same time, after 3 years, Dorgali Municipality obtained (translation here) from Sardegna Region authorization not to bolt new routes, but to rebolt old routes, as a kind of derogation from sic rules.
To prevent and avoid accidents (if an accident occurs, to prevent others, they can prohibit all, not only bolting, but even climbing).
So now they can buy bolts to rebolt old routes.
The first option is they buy A4 bolts and pay the bolting work, but, in this case, it will be difficult they can buy titanium bolts.
A possible, second option, IF MANY BOLTERS ASK IT with this LETTER, is they could “pay” the rebolting work giving not money, but their:
- bolts (4 in titanium: the first 2 and the 2 at the anchor) to rebolt OLD routes
- authorization to bolt a NEW route, for every old route rebolted
- 4 titanium bolts ( the first 2 and the 2 at the anchor) for every NEW route
- titanium anchors for every route, old and new.
So, it will be easier to obtain authorization to bolt NEW routes inside and around Colombi cave, if the proposal from MANY bolters (in a kind of “bolters party”) to local Municipality would be:
“ For every single NEW route you authorize me to bolt, with my and Your bolts, with your anchor, I first re-bolt an OLD one, with your bolts and anchor”.
