Climbs at this crag
About 1h30m drive W from Palermo airport or an hour N of Trapani airport. Many Ryanair flights to Trapani and straightforward by bus to San Vito http://www.aziendasicilianatrasporti.it (Airport-Trapani, Trapani-San Vito). EasyJet to Palermo, bus transfers not as frequent and require a 1km walk in Palermo. Transfers from both airports by El Bahira and Pineta campsites and many local San Vito firms.
Many apartments and villas all around. When booking apartments or villas check the small print (usually only in Italian) carefully, there are often extra charges for extra persons (over 2), air con/heating, and cleaning (I have seen €90!). There are deals to be done out of season, try direct contact with the owner. Also check the location, websites use San Vito as the area as well as the town, some villas are 15km away.
Many climbers stay at El Bahira because of the location at the foot of the crag.
It is possible to stay at the El Bahira campsite at the foot of the crags(tents, bungalows, mobile homes, villa) without a car but it is a 3km walk from the town, El Bahira will pick up from San Vito after shopping or from Trapani bus.
No access restrictions except for the area behind the El Bahira camp site where it would be polite to ask at reception. The campsite owner specifically asked for that area to be bolted and welcomes climbers.
