Sheltered

The crag consists of a slabby wall set back in a well-sheltered little valley. It faces dues south and catches the sun which makes it too hot for most days but welcome if there is a wind blowing, or it is cold. The routes are not included in the MiniGUIDE. APPROACH - Drive or get the bus to Kantouni Beach and park right down on the water front. Walk leftwards (looking out) past a small monastery and onto a vague path. This winds along the coast for about 2km until a small cairn is encountered on the left of the path. Take the side branch here and head up leftwards and around a ridge to the crag.

It is possible to continue for another 7m at 6a but the next lower-off is poor.
