This new area for Rockfax is another in the ‘glorious sunny sport climbing destinations in the Mediterranean’ category. The crags around San Vito and Palermo have more in common with a compact venue like Kalymnos than the more spread out climbing on Mallorca and the Costa Blanca. This book covers everything on the main crags, including the extensive Scogliera di Salinella, and is the only book you need.

More information


The Mediterranean island of Sicily offers holiday sport climbing in an excellent climate on superb rock. It has something of the character of Kalymnos with easily accessible cliffs many with a beautiful westerly aspect. There are steep tufa-caves, expansive vast walls and shorter single pitch cliffs mostly in easy reach of some delightful holiday accommodation. The climate is just what you would expect for winter sun in the Mediterranean.

This is one of the biggest guides yet for the island covering San Vito Lo Capo (Scogliera di Salinella and Monte Monaco), Macari, Castelluzzo, Custonaci and Palermo in the same book.
