/ San Vito - Sicily - Slabs?
Are there any slabby sectors with some technical slab climbs? Or is it all steep and vertical....difficult to tell from the topos in the guide.
Plenty of steepish technical slabby potential under Monte Monaco, youīll have to bolt it yourself though! The rest tends to be overhanging technical slabs, itīs coastal limestone after all.
Was also going to ask for wet weather options i.e sectors that stay dry in the rain + other non climbing things to do if it's wet?
Iīm been enjoying the delights of a somewhat autumnal Frankenjura this weekend Iīm afraid but Scott was/is out there no doubt working Ondraīs new line as we write!
Most of the big grottoīs stay dry apart from inevitable seep after loads of rain though thatīs normally not a problem after the summer, itīs finding the cave where the wind isnīt howling is more the trick. The rain there is usually combined with a F8 gale but only for a day (maybe 2) generally. On wet days we go bolting or exploring new cliffs anyway but others go touristing to Palermo and Erice.
