Description

Would you like to enjoy an unforgettable rock-climbing adventure in Sicily? Then you can’t miss this flexible program in San Vito Lo Capo. You decide the type of itinerary and its duration, and we make it true for you!

Because of its complex geology, Sicily is a great place for rock climbing on different types of rocks in gorgeous natural settings. San Vito lo Capo is on the north-western side of Sicily and enjoys quite the rock climbing reputation! Famous for its overhanging stalactites and crags with a view, it offers a wide variety of rock climbing routes for all levels, including the first 9a of the island, bolted by Adam Ondra. It all so offers a multitude of multi-pitch rock climbing options.

Another great thing about climbing in San Vito Lo Capo is that you can enjoy doing so year-round. However, to avoid crowds and scorching heat, the best time of the year to do so is fall, winter, and spring. Regardless of when you come, on this program, we will create an itinerary to suit you based on your preferences and needs. Options include single-day guided alpine climbing, single-day multi-pitch adventures, or longer options such as 3 or more days rock climbing or multi-pitch courses and programs.

Some of our favorite multi-pitch routes that we can go to include LA COLLINA DEI CONSIGLI Monte Monaco Parete Nord, 6b+(6a+ obbl); WALKING ON THE MOON Monte Monaco parete Nord, 6c(6b obbl);  SOGNI D’ORO Monte Monaco, Parete Est, 6b+(obbl 6a+); ORIENT EXPRESS Monte Monaco,Parete Est, 6c+(obbl 6b+).

About the guide

Sicily is my home, born and raised in Catania, under the beautiful Etna I have learned to ski on this incredible active Volcano. I’m a crazy rock climber since I was a boy! Passionate for adventures on big walls, with my Sicilian friends I have developed many rock climbing sectors around the island.

To follow my dream of becoming an Alpine Guide I travelled all around Europe and finally attended the course in Trentino where I spent the past 4 years. I remain quite nomad throughout the year, travelling north to south Italy working in both areas.

Contact me if you want to explore the most beautiful rock climbing spots in Sicily, organize a trekking trip on different volcanoes around the island, climb a big wall in San Vito Lo Capo, spend some days in the Dolomites ski touring and tasting great wines, Ice climbing in Piedmont, or just tell me your idea of adventure and I’ll do my best to make it happen!

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!

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.
