/ Sicily sport climbing
The grade breakdown is here http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=8671 and there are about another 50 routes not included in either of the guides.
The best place to stay is at El Bahira campsite as it is right in the middle of the main cliff, either camp or hire a bungalow/mobile home. The bar/restaurant and shop should be open then but there are restaurants in the town as well naturally enough.
The weather is good at Easter, in the mid/high 20Žs probably. IŽve been there for 7 Easters and a fair few times in the rest of the year, 16 times altogether I think.
WeŽll be there again this year bolting something new no doubt!
Making them tomorrow but have to wait for a delivery of metal to finish them all, the stockholders are on holiday for 2 weeks, IŽll see how many I can get from what I have. Probably 60 or so.
