What you'll do

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. 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. Are you ready to join? This unique trip awaits you!


Itinerary

Once picked up from the airport and greeted with a welcome aperitivo, you will have a quick warm-up with your group mates at Stardust Wall, while Gio and Cata prepare the dinner. Be ready for some barbecue or pizza and some chill in the hot tub! NB: There will be only one transfer that will pick you up at 8/8.30 pm at the airport of Palermo.
After some early morning Tibetan exercises, you will head towards the boulders, and get to choose your mission: a route beyond your capabilities to be closed in the next days. If breakfast wasn’t enough, consider taking advantage of our Cannoli delivery: from the best pastry shop in the surroundings to the crag. Some slack line training, and back to the basecamp for a nice dinner.
Spend the morning trying to complete your mission, and get to choose a new one if you made it. In the afternoon, you'll have a swim nearby and attend a Body Tension class or a Pole Dance or TRX. Dinner, music, and Stardust Wall in the evening!
After your Tibetan exercises, you'll head to do some DWS, a nice swim and some rest! In the afternoon, you'll trek nearby the b&b.
It is your last day, hence your last chance to complete the mission(s) you set at the beginning of the trip. You got this!
Unfortunately, it is already time to go home... Eat the last cannoli all together to plan your next adventure. Then, you will drop at the airport! NB: Same as the arrival, there will be one transfer that will leave at the time of the first of you to be at the airport :) We would advise you to leave in the afternoon, around 4 pm, so that you can enjoy your last day at the b&b!

Our bouldering trip in Sicily went well beyond my expectations. I got to hang out with a fun bunch of people in the woods climbing cool and interesting boulders. Marco and Dario, our climbing guides, were friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable yet challenged us to push ourselves. Apart from the woods, we went deep water soloing in the sea which was great on a hot day. We also took the time to go catch some sunset and some drinks time and again to wind down after all the hard work. The B&B we stayed at was comfortable and our hosts were very warm and welcoming. The food was fresh and tasty. The climbing wall we had at the B&B and the hot tub made it all the more perfect. Will definitely come back again

Temevo che l'esperienza sarebbe stata molto strutturata: colazione alle XX:XX, partenza alle XX:XX, si arrampica dalle alle, si mangia alle, ecc... Invece il programma è stato flessibile e sempre concordato con la guida e il resto del gruppo. I ragazzi del B&B Polvere di Stelle sono splendidi e ti fanno sentire a casa, la guida ti mette sempre a tuo agio, la roccia è fantastica. Con i compagni di arrampicata mi sono trovato molto bene e anche se arrampicavano qualche grado sopra il mio, mi hanno sempre fatto sentire il loro supporto sulle cose che volevo provare. Esperienza splendida che rifarei più che volentieri.

Fantastic experience with exceptional people! All the people I met are super nice and accompanied me on a journey where I experimented with new activities: from bouldering on rocks, to slackline, to DWS...
