/ Malta shady crags
I'm going to Malta/gozo and might be able to do a day or two of climbing. Which crags would you recommend that are shady and have climbs in the low 6s
Don't know whether it's shady or not but there's a good small crag further on from Chapel Buttress, think it faces south tho, it's nearer to the quarry and there's around 10 lines there, all in the 5's low 6's enough for a swift morning afternoon, or evening hit. I'd think that most of the stuff at Wied Babu East could be good in the mornings, there's quite a bit there in the range you're lookin for, more in the book if I recall than on the UKC logs..
Second vote for Wied Babu East - certainly do Kleen Kutter!
Mellieha cave, though not much low 6's.
Wied Il-Meilah on Gozo, sure to find some shade.
No worries at all. Sorry, forgot to say too that small crag near Chapel Buttress isn't in the guidebook and I couldn't find any topos for it at the time(it's fairly easy to find in that valley though), just got recommended it from MC Adventure when we'd dropped by to hire some kit.
Have a look on youtube, "Tango whisky takes a big lead fall" its a mate of mine taking a big whipper on Kleancutter!
Motorcycle gulley in the shade too, some classics on there.
Wied Babu is a nice narrow valley by the coast, with East and West facing walls which you can walk from face to face within 10 mins, with lots of nice lines in the 6's.
