Rock Climbing in Malta, take on the challange of Maltese cliffs and pitches
Experience Malta in a different way, regardless if you are a beginner or an expert climber
Climbing in Malta is fun and exciting and can be done all year around thanks to Malta’s mild climate that offers 300 + days of sunshine a year. Malta offers a good mixture of sports and traditional rock climbing thanks to other European climbers who visited Malta in the 80’s and 90’s and set up new routes.
Malta and Gozo together have over 1300 rock climbing routes in 30 different climbing areas with different difficulty levels. The styles vary and offer single and multi-pitch sea cliffs; single pitch inland crags; bouldering and many deep-water soloing locations.
Rock Climbing in Malta is not a major sport so when climbing you can climb peacefully if you wish, however at the popular climbing areas are Blue Grotto, Victoria Lines and Wied Babu you can expect nice company. Climbing in Malta is on limestone and climbers can choose to climb in the sun or the shade, depending on the time of the year.
Malta has been honoured with visits from Patrik Edlinger, Stevie Haston, John Dunne, Crispin Waddie, Garry Gibson, Simone Moro and Katie Brown so whether you are a beginner or an expert rock climber, there will be an appropriate level for you.
At the moment the hardest grade that has been climbed in Malta is at E7 6c (French 8a, USA 5.13b, UIAA X).
