Sheltered

A good set series of face climbs some slabby and some steeper. The area gets a lot shade and this with a decent collection of easier climbs means the area gets VERY busy in hot weather. Many of the routes are becoming unpleasantly polished.
Conditions The crag faces northwest and offers shade until early evening. It is also sheltered from the wind and rain though it can be very soapy when the humidity is high.
Approach - Park by or opposite the Mermaid Statue - almost opposite the Hotel Philoxena. The track starts here and runs up to a gate then a prominent olive tree before heading out left and toiling up the scree path to the welcoming shade and the huge jutting buttress just left of Grande Grotta. Continue leftwards from here to Afternoon - just around the corner.

A nice slab climb. The finish is quite tricky for the grade.

A popular and steep extension though the bolts are rusty and the recent loss of a tufa has made it harder. 35m from the ground.

Brilliant climbing with a bit of everything. Good holds from start to finish, though a bit polished and a choice of finishes.

An easy route up the left side of the easy-angled apron. All of these routes were rebolted late 2015 - the original 2010 bolts...
