Climbing

San Vito Lo Capo boasts a Mediterranean climate that lends itself to climbing, especially in the winter months. In the summer, when temperatures are too high, you can enjoy deep water soloing along the spectacular seaside cliffs.

San Vito Lo Capo offers climbers a wide array of mainly limestone crags in truly spectacular colors.

Most climbing areas can be reached on foot from town and approaches vary from 5 to 15 minutes.

The single-pitch routes range from 10 to 40 meters in height and the multi-pitch routes, both trad and sport, are from 260 – 400m. high on Pizzo Monaco and Mount Monaco respectively. There are presently about 850 sports routes ranging in difficulty from 3 to 9a.

For bouldering enthusiasts, a beautiful area of sandstone blocks is currently being developed.
