—————-

In 2017 and 2019 an intrepid group went to Sicily for some sport climbing and it was fun. We have decided to return in 2020, hence another soiree to add to the crowed Spring calendar. The plan is for a long weekend option from Wednesday until Sunday.

The details are below

DATES:

Departure Wednesday 22th April –Ryanair 7am start but able to climb on day one.

Come back on Sunday the 26th– Late landing (1:00am) but can climb on last day too.

 

FLIGHTS:

Flights currently (Jan) in the €115-120 range including 10kg cabin bag (not 20kg bag).

The destination the North western Sicily village of San Vito Lo Capo with 6Km of cliff sport crags on the eastern side and some nice multi-pitch routes on the western side and a nice beach in between.

As with all abroad trips – EVERY ONE IS  RESPONSIBLE FOR BOOKING THEIR OWN FLIGHTS.

 

ACCOMMODATION:

We have verbally confirmed our €15 a night deal with Marco in the Fabulous hostel “Timbuktu” for dorm rooms. We usually get secure dorms to ourselves.

We stayed here before and it is a very relaxed place with great breakfast included and a Bar out the back.

Bonus points if you are a decent Karaoke performer!
