About San Vito lo Capo:

see this site for all information: http://www.climbargolis.com/ClimbSicily.htm All routes are generously bolted with glued-in or bolt-in stainless bolts and nearly all are fitted with easy-use lower-offs to save threading. All routes can be climbed with a 60m rope, a few routes continue higher and have a second belay point (shown on topo). If the routes are longer this is indicated and we always provide an intermediate lower-off so a 60m rope will do. Joseph forgot to do a bolt count but no more than 14 quickdraws are needed. Names painted at start of most routes. I still dont have info for the routes at sector Bunker on the 60m overhanging wall right of the easy routes from myself but they are on the www.freeclimbingsicily.it website along with details of some other routes in the area . Additionally at this sector there is a cave further right with some more routes. There are many more routes in the area, at the eastern end of the beach at San Vito is Monte Monaco with about 40 routes, mostly single pitch but with a number of longer routes up to 400m long, see the guidebook or website for details, another cliff nearby is Scopello with 13 sport routes and some good potential on the nearby sea cliffs. There are also a few trad routes from earlier days and Ill try to get some translations of the descriptions though my information is that they are less than informative!
