/ Where to Buy Sicily Climbing Guide, on Sicily.
In Palermo, they seem to have climbing gear, so might be a good bet?
Try the campsite below the crag.
You can also get the local topo fold out map thing which is a bit awkward to use maybe as compared to the guide but quite up to date. We saw these in a good bookshop on one of the main streets.
Have a good trip
This is a better buy than the San Vito one. Similar cost but covers the whole Island.
I bought them both and only used the one to San Vito - it is much more user-friendly then the one to the whole island. There is easily enough around there for a month or more. Also some of the stuff in the big book is 4+ hours drive from San Vito!
Like Chris says, for San Vito the Gebro guide is far better (and more accurate and up to date). Regrettably a lot of the other cliffs in Sicily donīt quite live up to expectations, a couple are positively vile in fact! But thereīs enough to go at with either guide (or no guide at all for that matter!).
We went to one near Palermo, whose name escapes me. One very good route and a few scrappy ones, and everything undergraded.
We stuck to San Vito for the rest of the week :-)
Get yourself down to Pagoda in Siracuse, sort of thing that makes you give up climbing!
Anything decent around Taormina?
I've not been there but there is a lot in the guide which look good with lots of routes:- Molino, Castelmolo, Stockholm and Mazzaro. Stockholm featured in an old Climber article by Mikey Robertson
Just checked and Valdesi is the place we went. Clessidre was the really good route.
It's certainly not somewhere I'll be hurrying back to
