Sheltered

A good and popular crag with a decent set of face routes, almost all of which are sharp. The crag is very sheltered and gets hot.
Approach - From the parking at Kantouni Beach follow the track on the left past a church and out towards the headland. Descend into a small valley below the airport then continue towards the next ridge where a cairn (1.3km from the parking) marks a vague track on the left that leads up and round the ridge and into the valley with the crag.

The rounded pillar with a crack and slab above - enjoyable but very sharp. The crux is low down.

The big left leaning groove to a rightward exit is steep, atmospheric and intimidating. A great line.

Rebolted except on the crux, which is odd.

The steep groove is hard for the grade. The crux bulge is especially tough.

Just right of a low cave - a sharp wall to a high crux.

The extension only has one bolt - no wonder it doesn't get done much!
