The festival started in 2009, when San Vito Lo Capo was still little-known to climbing enthusiasts. The idea for the festival came from Massimo Cappuccio and Peppe Gallo, who then got their friend Daniele Arena involved. Together they were able to spread their passion to a large number of people.arrampicata climbing climbing festival organizzatori
