There are over 1,200 rock climbing routes in all the three islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino (Malta is an archipelago). All this in just a span of 315 square kilometers (122 sq. miles). So one is really spoilt for choice....and there is plenty of virgin rock still waiting to be conquered.
So if you`re in Malta on business, on a conference, studying or simply on holiday, or you actually live here, why not spend a day or two on Maltese rock? Or you might want to make a rock climbing holiday out of it, or combine it with what the rest of wonderful Malta has to offer. Whether you`re a complete beginner at rock climbing...or if you have only climbed indoors and want to touch real stone, or if you would like to improve your rock skills or if you are an expert rock athlete, Malta has excellent quality and varied choice of rock for everyone!
