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 the protagonist here, creating countless possibilities for exploration off-the-beaten-track, and for finding yourself alone on cliffs with extraordinary rock quality and scenery. Near Custonaci, you will find the impressive red-white-and-black tufas on the majestic overhanging Never Sleeping Wall, drive only 10’ south, and you will be climbing beautiful limestone within the natural scenery around Erice and its hidden bays. A short drive towards the countryside, and you will be exploring the lush Scorace forest with its numerous sandstone boulders: true diamonds in the rough.
Once you land in Palermo, rent a car and drive towards the Trapani area. If you are staying at the B&B of the local climber Cata, enjoy their massive aperitivo overlooking the countryside and the BBQ and get some tips on the newly opened routes in the area.
