Kleissoura gorge: Introduction

In this area newbies can't do a lot unless you can climb easily 6c. There are 5 routes under 6a and around 20 between 6b to 7b+. The place is too warm to climb during the summer but ideal during the winter. The area is located before reaching the village of Tries Ekklisies and you'll see it on the left as you going down. All you need is 2-3 minutes walking to get to the starting point.

How to get there

See map below, it's around 65km from Heraklion to Treis Ekklisies. You will need at least one hour and a half to get there due to bad road and again an off road vehicle. You can easily recognize the climbing spots from the pictures that cover each secror.

Almost all climbing routes here are opened from Manolis Kampourakis a few years ago and most of them are somewhere between 6b to 7b+.
