Lots of sun!

Sheltered

A rather poor venue, the short approach and sunny setting are its main virtues. The routes are spectacularly average - at best; some are a bit loose and all are very sharp.
Approach - Walk in the couple of minutes from the Kasteli Bend parking, or there is limited parking (2 cars) on the left opposite where Apollo is painted on the rock - a two minute approach to the first climbs.
Conditions - The crag gets afternoon and evening sun. It is sheltered and dries quickly.

Climb into and up the short, tricky red groove. Just about worth a star.

A solitary route away to the right - pleasant enough. The top bulge is a bit brittle and is easier on the left.

A steeper line on the left side of a cave away to the right and below Sector Peter. Best approached from the road.
