Description

An all day crag in a beautiful location with opposing faces, plus caves and walls in an airy location

A good spot for picnics that often gets the breeze. Crags face each other so climbing in the shade or sun is possible all day and offer pleasant climbing in the mid-grades. Further left is the yawning cave of Ourania, and pleasant walls of Mystery and further left again, Pyramid.

Ourania and Symplegades Rocks

The area is access sensitive!

Using the Masouri to Pothia road, head uphill on the winding road to Kamari. At the top of the hill turn left at the sign for the Kamari hotel, continue past the hotel and the church. Ahead is a left turn sign posted climbing areas. Follow the steep road to its conclusion where there are two sets of gates, park to avoid blocking the driveway. The left fence has a small gateway that allows climbers access to the climbing areas, respect the owners wishes and ensure the gate is closed after you pass by on foot. Continue up the steep drive, past the house bearing left, ahead is a gate in the wire fencing, once again ensure you close the gate after passing through. Follow the well worn path and blue paint markers far about 100m when Symblegades Petres is clearly visible to the right. For Ourania and Mystere do not turn right but continue on a level track following the occasional cairns for 5-10 minutes respectively.
