The Gape Cave

  • Grade context: FR

Description

To the right is a cave with a large villa sitting almost on top.

Beyond this cave the path continues past some broken buttresses to pass below a low, jutting overhang and a second, higher overhang.

Access issues inherited from Repubblika ta’ Malta

Most crags enjoy easy access with short walk-ins, and most are accessible by bus. Be careful not to cross farmlands without permission.

Ethic inherited from Victoria Lines

As with most of Malta bolting is discouraged, a few exceptions are allowed

  1. As rap points, and

  2. where ground strikes are likely

but otherwise there are enough points to place gear
