Pillar-Box Cave, MALTA

Climbs 6 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 25m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Abseil in from bolts/ ring 30m down to a large platform with cave at the back. To exit you can take the fishermen's way up, through the cave using various chipped hand and footholds and in situ rope and slings and stakes for assistance. A minor expedition in itself. Routes here were originally trad but sport lines have been added. Very high quality steep climbing. Care when messing around on the platform as there is a large drop below!

Access notes
Drive to Zurrieq then before exiting the town on the road to Wied Babu, take a left at a traffic island and follow signs to "Garden of Eden". Park near the walled parking area then continue on foot down the road to a gate which can be bypassed on the left. Follow the path along the coast to reach the lower offs.
