In the summer, the crag is in the shade from about 12:00.
The crag is in the regional natural park 'Costa Otranto - Santa Maria di Leuca'. Climbing is tollerated, possibly because the place is very busy during the summer months with people enjoying the lovely waters, but one should be extra clean and respectful of the place\nature. This is not necessarily true of the beach going folk, but I like to think that we climbers know better. The bins get full quickly and it can be a good idea to bring your own plastic bag for rubbish.
The crag can be reached from both sides. That is, either from the town of Gagliano following the signs for 'Sentiero il Ciolo', and there is a parking just before the parth starts, then the climbs are two minutes further on. Otherwise one can reach the crag by following the road along the coast and parking by the bridge, and then walking up to the crag.
