Area Info

This sector include maybe the most beautiful trad route in the whole gorge, that is El. Venizelos. You need to have on sight VII- to try this route as it has a lot of moves on that grade.

The first time I saw it I was awed. The second time I was left speechless looking at it for half an hour and the third time I shouted "belay" at the bottom of the imposing massif of Kofinas. One of the most beautiful mountains in Crete, south of Iraklio, with great climbing interest. The north face has three routes and the south five where two of them are multi pitch. You wont find many bolts here, just a few in belays. In the summer of 1999 two Austrian climbers climbed for the first time a long and difficult route for which we know almost nothing and the few information that we got were from Gunnar who lives and climbs in Kapetaniana. If you happen to climb that route or you know something about it please get in touch with me.

Area Info

This is the last sector located at the end of the face around 15 minutes walking from the Agios Antonios cave.

Area Info

The first sector is located on the left side of the gorge and all routes are no high than 18 meters. All routes in this sector opened from Manolis Kampourakis.

Area Info

The parking is just above this sector. All you need is just a few minutes until you reach the starting point of the routes.

Area Info

Three quiet hard routes (at least 7b) exist in this sector. It is located just next to sector 2 and you wont need more than a few minutes to get there.

Area Info

This sector is locate on the right side of the gorge and accommodate the highest routes of the area but not the hardest. There is a multi pitch route too.

Area Info

Three more routes in this sector as you keep walking from sector 3. Multi pitches routes, all well protected. It's good to use double ropes 50m. When you climb the "Tyrannosaurus" route be careful to see the second bolt on the second pitch after the belay as you might loose it due to its position and do a serious runout surprise

Area Info

This sector has two of the most beautiful routes in the area especially the "Snacky cracky" which moves on a really nice traverse at 5c.

Area Info

As you going down to the cave this sector is the first on the left. It has the easiest route on the area, 5a. It's difficult to get a panoramic photo due to cave's position. This is why I added just the numbers of each route to the starting point of each one.
