Description

This 7-day rock climbing trip in Sicily is your perfect choice if you want to spend a Vertical Vacation in Italy!

Sicily is mostly famous for the movies about the Italian Maffia. But there is much more to it. To begin with, it’s an island! the largest in the Mediterranean Sea. And it’s located just south of the Italian mainland, from which it’s divided by a narrow strait named Messina.

But for us, rock climbing lovers, there is even more to it. There are endless climbing possibilities with amazing landscapes and sceneries.

And this program will take you to the best spots in the island. And you’ll also have the possibility of visit incredible archaeological sites and relax at an spectacular spa or on a beach, plus you’ll be enjoying the amazing and world famous italian culinary delights.

As there are so many options to chose from I offer you a purely illustrative itinerary below. But we’ll discuss your preference and make a tailored trip according to your wishes.

So don’t hesitate about it, send me a request for this 7-day rock climbing trip in Sicily and let me show you the most wonderful rock climbing spots in this island!

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

we’ll rent a car in Trapani and go to the location you chose.
Transfers are always by car unless we decide to spend a few days at San Vito Camping, from where we can reach many areas on foot.

Day 2: Salinella

Wake up and breakfast. Transfer to Salinella, the main crag in the area of San Vito Lo Capo. An impressive number of equipped routes for every taste will await us. The beautiful view of the sea and the mild climate make it an ideal destination for winter climbing.

Day 3: Custonaci

Wake up, breakfast and off to Custonaci and the spectacular Never Sleeping Wall crag. The special thing about this place is the multitude of pipes and concretions which are abundant on the easy climbs.

Day 4: Crown of Aragon

After breakfast, we will go towards the Crown of Aragon, a beautiful and scenic crag, with mostly overhanging walls rich in concretions. The climb is athletic and continuous. Light lunch and relax on the beach before moving to the crags near Palermo.

Day 5: Bauso Rosso

Also the area of Palermo is rich in crags including Bauso Rosso, a magnificent rocky bar 500 m long with four important sections: InfernoPurgatorioParadiso and Arctica.

Day 6: Roccia dello Schiavo

Another day, another crag. This time is the Roccia dello Schiavo, a spur of Monte Pellegrino that overlooks the Parco della Favorita, in the heart of Palermo. The rock is an exceptional grey limestone, often sharp, but there are also areas with cracks and hourglasses. It is an area rich in sports itineraries to suit all tastes and levels, as well as multi-pitch routes.

Day 7: Palermo sightseeing and departure

The last day is dedicated to visiting Palermo, while the most indefatigable ones could spend the time with the last climbs before flying back home.
