Description

One of the classic crags of the island and very popular with strong climbers as it holds many testpieces. Slightly overhanging with or without tufas, caves with hard and very hard routes. Easier but worthwhile routes as well. Many routes below 6c are getting really polished. Grading can feel a tad more solid than in other crags of the island.

Access issues inherited from Armeos

When you pass a gate on your approach close it behind you! Also try to stay on the established approach paths.

Approach

Scooters take the uphill road starting at the sharp turn at Kasteli and park at the big boulder. [37.011646, 26.943074]

With bicycle (8 minute ride form Masouri): Ride to the abandoned house [37.0131, 26.9423], lock your bike to the fence and follow the rough path uphill for a minute. Turn right and follow the road to a big 5 metre boulder [37.011646, 26.943074].

Follow the path that begins at the boulder and continue uphill for 10 minutes to the big obvious wall facing north-west.

Technical climbing, with a strong crux and a pleasant finish .

Oct. 2017: Seems due for rebolting. Bolt #5 boltplate spinning, other bolts look corroded, anchor backed-up with a rope.

Start in the back left of the little cave. Up steeply on big jugs to a contorted finish.

Classy steep line on big holds. Some holds are getting a little polished.

Technical crux and somewhat polished.

A classy warm up.

Easy slab that steepens a bit at the end. Makes for a pleasant warm up.
