MASOURI AREA


The section of rock to the right of Panorama is a fine wide wall that runs all the way out to the white triangular wall of Zeus, beyond the open gully to the right of Poets. Although the rock formations are not quite as spectacular as the Grande Grotta, these walls have some brilliant and varied climbing and would be the showpiece walls in many a climbing area. The grade spread is good, with Coeur d'Armeos and Poets having the most to offer in the easier grades. The area is easily reached from the accommodation in Masouri. The cliffs are generally busy, though some sections see less traffic than others, particularly those towards Panorama - with harder routes and a longer walk.
