SAINT PHOTIS


This relatively recently developed crag offers a small set of good routes in a pleasant setting. There is plenty more potential here so expect some new developments. The crag is in 2 parts; a lower wall of vertical rock and an upper cave and side wall which gives slightly steeper routes. The crag is not included in the MiniGUIDE.
APPROACH - Walk in as for Monastery but from the cairn, continue on the path for another 10 minutes until you arrive at the tiny chapel. The upper crag is around the corner to the right and is a further (steep) 5 minutes walk.
