Anyone climbed on Amalfi Coast. Staying in Sorrento for a week, wondered if I should take my gear. Any info much appreciated.

It's quite a while back, but I really commend you take your gear. Plan to do some driving, not disance but timewise.  sport climbing gear is sufficient, good routes tend to be 6a/b and above.

I walked under the crags behind Ravello a while back and they look very good (sport climbing) stunning setting......

It's years since I've been, so I'm not sure the current access status of some of it, but there's stacks of superb climbing on Amalfi. If you don't bring your gear, you will kick yourself.

Around the Scala area, there's some great technical old school climbing (with fairly old school grades), put up by Oreste Bottiglieri, although some of his crags were later covered by steel netting by the authorities to prevent rockfall.

Along at Positano, Cristiano Bacci later developed more new school climbing - big caves, tufas, etc.

Either way, the climbing is great and the scenery mind blowing

It's great out there. This time of year can be really perfect. Theres a new(ish) guidebook available: http://www.climb-europe.com/rockclimbingshop/Malopasso-Rock-Climbing-Guidebook-for-the-Amalfi-Coast.html

Lots of single pitch sport of all grades.
