This guidebook describes the sport climbing around the famous seaside resort of San Vito Lo Capo, near Trapani in northern Sicily. Along the coast on the west side of San Vito lo Capo is a great coastal cliff nearly 4km long. This cliff has hundreds of quality limestone single pitch routes mainly in the easy to mid grades (half the routes are F6b+ and below), which are detailed in this guidebook. Also included is Castelluzzo crag near Macari and Custonaci crag near Scurati, which are close to San Vito lo Capo. San Vito is an excellent place to go climbing in the winter months as many of the crags face south and west.
At the start of each area there is a good location map, information how to get there, and a general description of the climbing. In total around 850 sport routes are described, plus many multi-pitch routes up to 400m long. All the routes are illustrated on colour photo-topos with French grades.
This is the 4th edition of this guidebook, which was published in October and has more than 90 routes than the previous 3rd edition. The guidebook is written in Italian, German and English text throughout, and includes many excellent action photographs.
