Uli and me have been sport climbing the near Zurrieq and Mgarr ix-Xini.
I’ll recommend it to other climbers – it’s really a nice area, the rock is perfect, and where bolts are in place they look trustworthy and are mostly placed just as one would desire them 🙂 The guide book did its job very well; we usually found what we looked for and felt well guided by the descriptions and photos.
In case you did not hear it from the Maltese climbing community: On page 251, Italian walls, route 2 and 4 are now clip-up routes. The bolts look trustworthy.
