Lots of sun!

A reasonably well-named area with a decent set of easier single pitch routes and some gentle longer climbs. It isn't all good news though, there is some loose rock here and many of the belays have no fixed carabiners so need threading - so not an ideal venue for complete newbies. If you need them to thread the lower-offs, go through the details BEFORE they climb!
Approach - Drive around 'Kasteli Bend' and turn hard right onto a steep concrete road. Drive up and along here and park without obstructing access - there are often a lot of scooters at the end of the track as this is also the parking for Odyssey and Iliad. The track starts by some large boulders and heads up then left, passing under the whole of Odyssey then across the scree and boulders to below the cliff - about 20 mins.
Conditions - The crag gets afternoon sun and is sheltered and but will have some seepage after rain.

1) 6b+, 2) 6a. A two pitch trip up the left side of the cave and the grey slab above. The crux is passing the initial bulges
