SAN VITO LO CAPO
The largest Meditteranean island is Sicily which belongs to Italy. The region of Sicily is mainly mountains, characterized by Mount Etna. It's Europe's highest active volcano. Sicily with peaks that reach more than 2000 metres and green bushy vegetation attracts many active people around the world. Climbing is spread out across the northern and eastern coastline. The most famous climbing areas are around San Vito lo Capo. In San Vito lo Capo there is a climbing barrier across the coastline for a few kilometers with sun-faced yellow, orange, and grey walls. Of course, San Vito attracts many tourists, mostly in summer. For climbers, this destination is interesting in winter and other times of the year. For this reason, we chose this destination to escape winter in central Europe to get some sun and nice climbing on beautiful compact rock with lots of easy routes and a great atmosphere.
It's hard to describe the whole island because is big. The coastal town of San Vito Lo Capo has many beautiful beaches, and cliffs along the coast. The best climate offers a great climbing destination in early spring and until late autumn, perhaps also winter. This small region has more than 1300 single pitches. the rock is very good and compact orange, yellow, and grey limestone. The best thing about this area is easy access to crags, flat ground which is good for kids, and camping from where you can reach closer sectors. Most of the sectors are sun exposure.
Sicily is the hottest region of Italy and has the least rainfall. The specialty of the island is wind. The wind is changing directions, so you must search for shelter from it, which it's possible to find. The winter can be with mild temperatures also cold with strong wind, but early spring and late autumn is probably the best period for having nice sunny and not too warm conditions for climbing.
San Vito Lo Capo is a little town located on the northwestern coast of Sicily. It's surrounded by mountains beautiful beaches and a wild cliff coastline. The most attractive season is summer for vacationers, but the climber's eye is always searching for a quiet season, so with lots of sunny days it's perfect to spend some nice climbing holidays for mild winter and warm autumn. Every Saturday is a market day, and you must go there and get some fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits. In March the season is still in quite mode, but there a few restaurants are open and grocery shops, but nothing very special.

Day 2: Having an easy start with lots of easy routes for warming up the body and getting used to the rock.
Day 3: Climbing on vertical routes. Concentrating more on on-sight climbing technique and mental training – discuss how to approach on-sight, visualization, preparation, analysis, learning where to clip, resting exercise, learning commitment, and reading the route.
Day 4: Climbing hard routes. You will learn how to climb more challenging routes with the redpoint approach step by step. You will know how to do visualization for the redpoint, which is part of mental coaching. The red point is not only climbing but also practicing falling. It is part of the game and learning process for gaining better performance in the working route, even when we are pumped to get that 100% out of our bodies.
Day 5: Rest day is part of training so we might take one as well. Not necessary to have a complete rest day; we might still do some running and yoga in the morning and swimming or easy climbing in the afternoon. It also depends on the group and their needs and wishes. One of the rest day activities is climbing without hands or using fewer hands, toprope of course. These skills are excellent for learning how to be efficient, improving climbing techniques for more challenging routes, and having fun.
Day 6: Climbing days for on-sight attempt with repetition if necessary. You will try to put your mental knowledge into climbing and try hard.
Day 7: We will return to your redpoint project to test your head and power. You are learning how to mentally prepare for sending the projects and the proper mindset for this day. And also, not only is sending a reward, but the process should be the goal that motivates us.
Day 8: The final day or more relaxed day for you will be climbing without pressure from us. You choose whatever you wish that day to climb. You must enjoy and try to climb as much as your head and muscles let you. We can repeat your projects, foot and hand technique, mental coaching, falling practice, or hang out in climbing crags and have fun with no stress.
