The coastline of Western Sicily is a real amusement park for climbers. The protagonists here are the Mediterranean sea, the golden tufas, and the laid-back Sicilian vibe. Besides the world-famous Salinella cliff near San Vito lo Capo, Western Sicily has so much more to offer. Nature is still untouched here, creating countless possibilities for exploration off-the-beaten-track, and for finding yourself alone on cliffs with extraordinary rock quality and scenery, ranging from limestone crags, to sandstone boulders and to DWS on crystal clear water.
Our trips are designed for climbers by climbers: we select the best areas off-the-beaten-track and make sure you experience Sicily as a climber and not as a tourist, living the true Sicilian vibe.
This is a climbing trip for climbers. There will be no instructors nor guides, hence you are expected to be completely autonomous in outdoor climbing. None of the activities proposed should be considered as educational. In case ropes are not your thing, you can still enjoy a great climbing week doing bouldering and DWS. Grades ranges from 5a to 8+, so any level in between is fine. We do not mind about your grade as much as about your ability to be fully independent. If you are unsure about your climbing level or need more information or if you prefer a guided tour, contact us.
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.
The program is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, climbing level -and endurance of the group
