Andrew Warrington

Climbing since 1985, Andy got the bug as the first member to join the University Rock Climbing Club. He's climbed consistently since then, enjoying mostly chossy, vegetated epic new climbs on sea cliffs. He delights in weaning newcomers to the thrills of climbing, and has been responsible for recruiting some of Malta's best climbers. Read more...

Roland Sultana

Roland is a stalwart of the rock climbing scene in Malta. Starting out in 1999, has climbed consistently and strongly since. He is active in the local scene, being a member of the MTA-MRCC Bolting Team, committee member of the MRCC and officer responsible for environment and access within the Club. Read more...

KURT CALIGARI

Kurt started out climbing with the Scouts at Wied Babu back at the turn of the century (?!) after years of abseiling fun and instruction. Upon meeting Andrew and Roland, his obsession for the sport really took off. He enjoys all climbing disciplines from bouldering to sport, trad to alpine climbing and mountaineering. Read more...

 

MATTHEW MANDERSON

Matthew has been sport climbing in Malta since 2010 and particularly enjoys taking people to Malta's remote climbing areas to help progress their climbing and show off what Malta has to offer. As a club member he is always keen to support activities such as crag clean-ups and generally improving access to climbs in Malta. Read more...

GERALD DeGAETANO

Gerald started off his sporting career as a middle and long distance runner, holding several National records and representing Malta at several Games.  He later converted to flatwater kayaking as his main sport but also does sea kayaking for leisure.  His biggest passion is extreme trekking incorporating stretches of scrambling verging on free soloing, and he has decades of experience in this field.  Gerald is also a keen cyclist and his bicycle doubles up as his preferred choice of transport to wherever he needs to go.

Peter Benkoczky

Peter took up climbing in 2012 and has never looked back. Before settling in Malta, he climbed in Slovakia, Spain, Italy, Wales and England. In the relatively short time he has been climbing, he has completed over 1000 outdoor climbs, a testament to his passion - or perhaps obsession - with the sport! If you get to climb with him, prepare yourself for some hard, gnarly climbs, bulging biceps and shredded digits! Besides climbing he also likes doing other outdoor activities including mountain biking, abseiling, kayaking zip lining and snorkelling. 

 

Marco RicCi

Marco is our cycling guide. He has been cycling for the past 10 years and has developed a great passion for exploring Malta's country lanes and scenic routes. Gozo (Malta‚Äôs sister island) is his favourite place to cycle and a trip across there will guarantee a day of spectacular cliffs, challenging hills and mild off-road trails. His hobbies include trekking, camping, tennis and kayaking. Besides cycling in Malta, Marco also likes to go cycling in other areas, Sicily being another island that he has visited on his bike numerous times.
