Topic - How much sport climbing is there in Malta

colinmcmanus on 04 Jan 2013
Hi,
Some friends and I are planning an early season trip to the Med around March for around a week. Nothing too strenuous, low to medium grade stuff to get warmed up for the year.

I've started looking at Malta as a destination but from what I can understand it is mainly trad climbing. Prefer trad personally, but for trip abroad it's a lot easier to do sport and save the hassle (and baggage expense) of transporting a rack. What I'm not clear on is the extent of sport routes in Malta.

How may routes are there? Grade profile? Is it enough to keep 3/4 blokes entertained for a week?

I've spotted the updated guide for Malta, looks very good quality, but it's a bit expensive for a speculative purchase.

Anyone got good intelligence on the area and the extent of bolted routes? Or creative suggestions for transporting a trad rack without too much expense?
