There is one route in the area called "Searching for diktamo". It is VI UIAA and 215 meters. Opened in 2007 from M.Tsikandilaki, G.Anastasaki, Y.Aggeli and X.Papandreou. The route follows the edge on a typical limestone. To climb the route you will need a full trad climbing equipement and especially friends (numbers 2-4), slings and nuts.

The starting point of the route is close to village of Krousonas, 25km south west of Heraklion. To get there follow an off road for around 5km with direction to the church of Agios Ioannis (ask locals how to get there). You will need an extra 30-40 minutes of walking to catch the first belay. An exampe topo is given below.
