The local community

Cata and the local climbers

The continuous development of the area has been carried out by a handful of experienced climbers coming and going to Sicily, who decided to dedicate time and effort in cleaning and setting up hundreds of routes, while working for or running a couple of shelters for climbers. Lately the most prolific figure has been Cata, who is running a B&B in the beautiful countryside near Trapani with his partner Giorgia. Other honorable mentions are Daniele Arena and Ivan Savoi, together with a moltitude of Italian and international climbers. What is particularly interesting to see is the growth of local climbers: we really hope that in the coming years it will be them to lead the development and exploration of the many untouched walls in the area!

Evasion Koh Tao

Evasion Koh Tao runs a small shop with a bouldering wall and offers rock climbing as well as kite surfing and a few other sports. They primarily guide at Golden View, an area of over 30 routes developed by The Block, a branch of Evasion Koh Tao Outdoor Sports Agency. Florian Frangioni is one of the partners of The Block and can always be found bolting new routes and providing maintenance for the Golden View area.
