Malta is the ideal place for a rock climbing holiday. Rock climbing in Malta is possible the whole year through due to mild winter conditions. Whilst Maltese climbers are still doing it outdoors, their European counterparts are forced by the cold and wet winters to continue their beloved sport at indoor climbing gyms.

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!

Basic Rock Climbing is a 20 hour intensive and instructional course which is run over two full days or four half days. This is aimed at the complete beginner. The student is introduced to bouldering (rock climbing close to the ground). Here basic climbing principles are introduced: various hand grips and confidence building in footwork, balance, weight distribution, energy conservation, basic movement on rock, etc, etc. An introduction to rock climbing equipment and its proper use is given. The student is introduced to top / bottom roping and abseiling (rappelling). Basic climbing knots are demonstrated. The system of belaying (safeguarding a climber from falling) is taught.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Cost (in Maltese Lira): Lm 60.00 = $176. Basic Rock Climbing Course duration: 20 hours.
