San Vito lo Capo
A 4km line of limestone cliffs in the North West of Sicily, San Vito lo Capo offers something for everyone with climbing in all grades. There are thousands of routes, all well bolted, mostly up to 30m in length, although there are a few longer pitches, and some multi pitch routes in the surrounding area.
San Vito is a beautiful area with limestone pavements, sandy beaches and some mountain walks in the nearby hills and Zigora National Park.
Although it can be cool, climbing in winter is very popular here. Spring and autumn are perfect, it can rain, but the rock dries quickly. In summer it is far too hot.
