The walls opposite and just right of the tiny white chapel give some of the easier routes in the area. On the left side of the valley is a triangular wall (known as View of the Chapel), whist at the end of the path is the actual Chapel Area, with routes just right of the building
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 and once past this the chapel and cliffs come into view.

40m further right is a long arete. The left-hand line is loose and the bolt spacing is a worry. A long pitch - approaching 40m.

The left-hand line up a bit of a groove. Care needed with the start.

A decent face route some of the rock is a bit crusty.
