Summary

A very big cave with quite a long but a rewarding approach. The grades are on the tougher side. There's a lot of potential for new routes as well.

Description

Getting to the cave takes quite some time (traversing steep terrain to get down to the beach), but just the view of the cave is worth it and so is the climbing in it. An alternative and possibly shorter approach could be made from the south side, but that should probably be checked with any owners of the land to prevent any access issues.

The left (south) side is more or less always in the shade, while the right (north) side gets shady in the afternoon (for instance route Oedipus Rex gets shady at around 2 PM), so almost all of the routes are in the shade at around 4 PM.

Approach

(35.582557, 23.600410)

(35.574382, 23.605228)

Park near the main parking lot for Balos beach and head down the path that starts at the turn. The path that leads to the beach is occasionally marked with stone piles/pyramids. When you get to the beach (passing another cave), head south (right) for about 15 more minutes. Total approach time is around 50 minutes.
