San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily

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.

Sectors near camping El Bahira, with beautiful sunsets.
Cala Mancini sector, San Vito lo Capo.

Characteristic and best season for climbing

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.

Little town of San Vito lo Capo

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.

March can be hot or cold, you never know. But less rain than in central Europe.

When?

Winter and spring (March).

You can join us for only one day or up to 10 days.
