Description

The cave itself is a large hole in the limestone cliff with routes ranging from 5c (extreme right) to the 8th grade (in the middle). The cave has often some part in the shade, providing some nice places to eat and rest. Please keep it as clean as I was happy to find it. And if you can clean some chalk as well, it will be even better! The right part is in the morning shade while the left part gets shady in the afternoon.

Getting There

South of Floridia, and directly east of Canicattini Bagni. Exit off the Catania-Siracuse autostrada at Floridia (SS124). Go to Floridia! Find SP12 at the south end of Floridia. Drive until you hit some random speed bumps. Find the very sharp right-hand downhill turn just 1/4 mile down the road. There is a sign for "Diego". There's also a sign for a motocross track. Take Diego. Looooong, straight road that will switchback sharply uphill at the end. At the top, look for the gravel road on the left, just after the guard rail. Drive until you get to a green swinging gate and park before it (or beyond the gate until you get stopped by a crappy little wire gate. Pray you don't get locked in.) Hike the trail uphill and remain going straight at the short (in height) stone wall. You'll find many thorn bushes, and rocks on the ground with red paint. The cliff is to your left, where the CRAG dwells! Hike until you find the man made cement troughs. Go to the cliff from here to rappel down to the crag. Continue along the cliff from the troughs if you want to hike the downhill gulley (entrance directs you in the direction you just approached from.) If you find the ropes that assist you down a 2 meter drop-off, you know you're in the right place!

The overlook at the canyon along the road. A guardrail blocks the drop-off.

A good rappel station that can take you straight to the crag, if you don't wanna keep hiking to find the gulley.

Yep, you're almost there. Walk straight to the edge of the cliff, and you'll be standing directly over the crag. Look for a convenient rappel station.

Beautiful view of the canyon. This is you standing directly above the crag, by the way.
