ARHI


Arhi means ‘beginning’ in Greek and this was where it all started a few years ago with the first routes being climbed in the mid 1990s. The centre of the crag is dominated by a striking oval-shaped cave which promises a lot but is in reality too big and steep to offer much. It is the walls on either side of this cave which have some of the best mid to low-grade climbs on the island and there is plenty here to keep you busy for several visits but take it easy otherwise your fingers may get shredded by the sharp holds. There are only a few harder routes but they are all of very high quality which can mean that they get a bit busy oif the crag is crowded.
