Guidebooks for Malta
Rock climbing in Malta & Gozo was started by the British RAF in the 60's and 70's and hence has a history of British traditional rock climbing ethics (with the leader placing natural protection such as nuts and friends). During the 80's and 90's other European climbers (mainly Italian) visited the island and established many new bolted sport routes. Hence the islands offer a good mixture of sport and traditional rock climbing on good quality limestone rock. This is something that is unique in the Mediterranean and offers rock climbers the best of both worlds. The climbing ethic is to have designated sport climbing crags and keep the traditional rock climbing crags bolt free.
