Prinias

New routes, Prinias
I was looking something really close to my flat while searching for rocks. I start cycling around the area and found a small cliff, around 8-9 meters and a second one around 18m, well protected from the weather conditions. It is perfect for newbies as all routes (9 in total) are low and easy (5a+/6a+). All routes are equipped with 10mm stainless bolts and belays are ready with two bolts and a ring ready to abseil. You can climb all year long apart from hot summer days due to been in sun most of the day. You need around 30 minutes from Heraklion to Prinias and just 10 from my flat cheeky

Road access

From Heraklion follow the signs for Voutes and Asites. After a few km from Asites you will see a big parking on the left of the road with a large tree in the middle of it. Park there and get your climbing gear off the car! As you are on the parking you will see two faces around 20m each just 100 meters away from the parking. The sector is in front of them, see related gallery to get a better view.

You can also check Google map below to get a better idea how to get to the parking.
