Description

One of the most versatile crags in the Area of Nafplio, Karathona -named after the popular beach below- has been hosting local climbers, climbing schools, guides and intermediate aspirants trying out its more challenging routes of grades up to 6c+ (including a much harder project). Friendly, small plateau, comfortable belay positions and a hidden chapel in the vicinity ("Κατακεκρυμμένη" meaning "well hidden"). The left-most sector (routes: Hou Hou, Mission Impossible, Cracken, Slivowiza, Wind of Change) includes a more challenging access and contains less climbed routes, not too regularly visited, observed or maintained, so approach and climb with caution.

Every now and then, you might also get a visit from the hoofed denizens of the pen below the crag. Lower on the plateau, you can park comfortably, but be warned of the occasional shepherd dogs roaming around their home.
