San Vito Lo Capo, rock climbing in Sicily

I had a wonderful day climbing with Mirto. I learned a few things and pushed my grade in a safe manner. Mirto was supportive, encouraging, and a fun climbing partner!

San Vito Lo Capo, rock climbing in Sicily

Mirto is an excellent guide, he is friendly and very engaging. He takes time to explain climbing technique and safety concepts. He is passionate about the climbing spots in sicily, and he has many years experience. Would definitely climb with Mirto again, and I recommend the Multi pitch routes in mt etna hills.
