guys - looking at heading to sicily (or malta or sardinia) in oct for maybe 2 weeks - just looking into it at the moment - flights look reasonable for sicily - might try and get some folk to go with me but if solo is it easy to find partners there and would you need a car - same questions forr all three venues - sport climb 5 plus/6a but should be stronger by then so might hope to tick off a few 6a pluses - cheers in advance - and if there are some trad multi pitches at 4 plus - be happy to do these for a nice day out -

For San Vito lo Capo (Sicily) you donīt need a car, the campground is right in the middle of the cliff, there is a small shop, restaurant etc and the town is 20mins away walking. The campsite also run a shopping bus into the town and hire bikes. They will do an airport pick-up if the buses donīt work, itīs not a very good connection because the airport is in a different province to the climbing so the bus really only travels from city to city (Palermo-airport-Trapani) then you need to get a local bus trapani-San Vito.
Thereīs loads of climbing at your grade and a few easier trad routes, the arete on Pizzo Monaco is popular and easy enough, thereīs supposed to be a 5 move on it somewhere but I never noticed it!
In October is the climbing/outdoor festival so there will be about 1,000 climbers there, this year it is 10th-13th October. You might meet me there, Iīm one of the original developers.
