GALATIANI AREA


An interesting scattering of cliffs that are generally rather neglected despite having a lot of good climbing. Looking out over the bay, situated between the more popular Ghost Kitchen crags to the north and the Arhi cliffs to the southeast, they include some huge tufa-fests up in the Calcite Cave of Galatiani, which attracts escapees from the Grande Grotta fancying something a little different.
