To the south east of the island there is a large concentration of crags between Siracusa and Ragusa, which are mainly single-pitch sport routes offering a good selection of routes across all grades.
However at Monti Climiti there are bolted routes up to 100m long with 8 different crags spread out on 3 sides of the mountain. Generally there are not many routes established at each crag, and the number of bolted routes varies from 5 to 21. However the crags are separated by only a few minutes drive from each other with only a short walk to each crag. There is a good selection of single pitch routes as well as bolted multi-pitch routes across all grades on limestone rock.
