Victoria Lines

North, MALTA

Climbs 200 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 104m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
A number of buttress that follow the line of fortifications (actually it's the other way round !) across the northern part of the island. Routes tend to be around 10 to 20 m in length on rock which is usually steeper and more juggy than the rest of the island.

Some boulder problems have been documented, but there's probably loads more that can be done
