GUIDA DI ARAMPICATA

Palazzo dei Ladri Climbing Area Near Ragusa

Located south of the Ragusa this small area is located in what was known as the Moncille quarry.  It is in a small canyon that follows the Irminio river and is very close to the city.  The surrounding area is not very appealing since it sits in the Industrial Zona of the city.  There were only six routes the last time I passed the area and to be honest I would probably never stop there again.  There are plenty of better options in the area but if you must get on the rock this fairly easy to find and zero approach time.  Plus Ragusa is worth the visit, Palazzo dei Ladri would translate to home or house of thieves. 

How Do I Get To Palazzo dei Ladri

From Ragusa access the industrial area to the south and locate the business Polimeri Europa, from here follow SP 73 south toward Marina di Ragusa for 2.1 km.   As you are passing over an elevated section of the road you will see the cliffs on the right.  Park here and there is a small bridge that takes you over the canyon to the wall where you will see the routes.
