The climbing around San Vito Lo Capo seems to be made for a Mediterranean climbing holiday. About 4 kilometers of beautiful limestone crags stretch from the town of San Vito Lo Capo to Macari, with several other crags with in a few minutes drive. The crags have a beautiful view of the sea and the coastline toward Trapani. Most of the rock has a south westerly aspect (a few crags are in the shade most of the day) so expect to be climbing in the sun. Wind is a major factor in the temperatures on the wall. We visited in May and what we noticed was if there are white caps on the sea then climbing in the sun was ideal. If the water was as calm as hindu cows then we looked for the shade or climbed in the morning.
Access is very easy with approaches from 2 minutes to 30 minutes. The routes cross the spectrum of grades and many stretch a 70 meter rope.
There is a guide called "Sicily Rock" by Karsten Oelze and Harald Roker that is done quite well. I Recommend you purchase this guide before going to Sicily, we looked for other info on the routes and pretty much struck out. The book covers the areas near S.V.L.C.. Jun 15, 2012
