The Place

The coastline of Western Sicily is a real amusement park for climbers. The protagonists are the Mediterranean sea, the golden tufas, and the laid-back Sicilian vibe. Nature is still untouched here and you will find extraordinary rock quality and scenery, ranging from limestone crags, to sandstone boulders and DWS routes over crystal clear water.

Mapo Tapo Boulder Camp

For 6 days, you will join Davide, local expert, strong climber, bolter and developer of the area, who will show you the hidden rock climbing gems of Sicily.

During the Boulder Camp, you will explore the awesome sandstone boulders of Western Sicily, experience the local climbing culture, and most of all have a blast with your new climbing buddies. On top of that, pristine beaches, awesome food and an amazing Sicilian vibe await.

During these 5 days you will:

  • Climb a lot!
  • Practice drills to master different bouldering techniques: heel hooks, shoulder moves, foot swaps
  • Practice exercises to enhance your balance and your body strength: TRX, slack lining, pole dance
  • Eat a lot of delicious food (all dinners are included in the price of the trip!)
  • Have a lot of fun

With this trip, you will also support the local climbing community in the area!

A glimpse of what to expect

Our basecamp

Climbing Skills

This is a climbing trip for autonomous climbers exclusively. There will be no instructors nor guides present, so you will need to know how to climb safely outdoors without help of a third party. Boulder grades range from 5a to 8+. We do not mind about your grade as much as about your ability to be a fully independent climber. If you are unsure about your climbing level and you prefer to be guided or assisted in climbing, book onto one of our trips labelled 'Certified guide included' or contact us.

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. For any inaccuracies, however, we can not accept any liability. Rock climbing is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge and skills not to go outdoor alone. Contact us to organize a trip with a certified mountain guide instead.
