Description

A set of tall towers with routes across the grades and the potential for more. South and west facing and fast drying, the routes on the right get plenty of sun. Those in the center and over the left keep the shade. Originally known as Cat Snake Crag and developed for trad climbing.

Access issues inherited from Ineia-Drousheia Area

No known access issues, the area is within the Akamas National Park. Please respect the nature and behave responsibly (do not litter, try to keep to established roads/trails as much as possible and practice the principle of leaving the place you visit better than it was before). This is to maintain the current free access to the boulders for everyone to enjoy.

As the rock quality in the area is excellent, we must as climbers do our best to ensure that the rock remains in the best condition possible for the future. As such please read the steps below that can be taken to ensure that we preserve the rock while climbing:

  1. Please don’t climb with wet or dirty shoes, as this damages the hardened outer layer of sandstone over time, exposing the soft layer underneath, which is prone to erosion. As such make sure to thoroughly clean your shoes before pulling on any problems using a rag, carpet etc.

  2. Don’t climb when the rock is wet or damp, and refrain from climbing the day after it has rained. The rock may appear dry on the outside however the inner layers absorb water which weakens the overall integrity of the rock, which can cause holds to break. A good rule of thumb: if the ground around the rock is still pretty wet then probably you shouldn’t climb.

  3. Don’t use wire brushes to clean the rock as this can be highly damaging to the rock, there may be occasions where some wire brushing may be necessary to remove heavy patches of lichen, but this should always be done as a last resort, with a light touch and a lot of care, so if you need to clean something opt for nylon or bristle brushes.

  4. While the farmers we have spoken to are perfectly fine with us climbing on their land this is dependent on us not disturbing or damaging any of their crops and trees, so please be extra careful of this when climbing on boulders located in farmland as this is the easiest and quickest way for us to lose access to these boulders.

  5. Don’t litter! (This should go without saying)

  6. No chipping, manufacturing, or modification of holds! (This too should also go without saying)

To summarize, the area around Inia and Droushia is an incredible area with unique rock and climbing, and the only one of its kind in Cyprus. As there is a limited amount of quality rock on the island if we all make sure to follow the above steps, we will be ensuring that the boulders and crags in the area will survive and that their quality will be maintained over the years for everyone to enjoy!

Grade Route

Starts at routes "Batman" and "Rusting". Climbs the slab towards the right-hand end of the crag. A number of variations are possible.

Set: 2020

The right side of the face to a anchor hidden on the right over the final bulge - nice.

A couple of juggy moves access the nice slab.

"It depends" - if you start from right is 5b if you start from left is 5c. A couple of steep pulls gain easy ground.

A hard bouldery start gains the easy slab - seriously unbalanced.

Ground start of Arhigos Mpanagiotis. Climb with caution and ideally start with the 2nd bolt clipped. Bouldery but nice!

The grade was given starting from the top of the rock. Starting from the ground is harder but you might get injured in case of a fall.

The wall right of the big corner.

The obvious huge corner system is trad.

The steep and bold feeling left arete of the face.

This is the imposing ramp/crack-line that runs across the right wall of the canyon. There are more trad routes to the right on this block.

The slabby left-hand side of the canyon - glue-ins.

Start on the west wall from the block and at half-height move round onto the south wall - all feels a bit bold.

From a boulder climb the crack in the wall to a lower-off at the steepening.

The superb crack-line (glue-ins) where the path arrives at the crag. The name of the climb is written on the start of the route.

The soaring arete.

Start with a big block and climb the side wall via a tiny groove.

The left-hand line on the steep side-wall. There appears to be another lower-off to the left but no bolts below it.
