Oktoberfest in Sicily

Mika Huhtamaki
San Vito Lo Capo is located nearby Trapani and Palermo

Finnish fall is mostly rainy and rocks are too slippery for enjoyable climbing. So we had only one viable option, head out to a more suitable place for practicing outdoor activities. And surprisingly our destination is again Italy but this time the southern part of it. So this year our October fest will be in Sicily in a small city at the western part of the island.

Road to Sicily
Lot of climbers have been visiting Sicily but we tried to find something new. After a bit of research Sami located a small city called San Vito Lo Capo. San Vito is famous for couscous, sunny beaches and a great number of Italian sunbathers. Beaches are nice but we enjoy more the rocky wilderness. And this place has a lot to offer for a rock climbers who prefer almost untouched red limestone next to the Mediterranean Sea. Majority of the routes are next to the sea and bolted after 2005.

Stay tuned, there's more to come... And remember that there is always a place where the sun shines!
