The islands first developed crag, offers a little bit for everyone (5-9a+). From slab routes to steep tufa wrestling among some of the sectors many cave features. Because of the various directions the crag faces, you can climb most of the day chasing shade. The sun hits the majority of the crag around about 1400.
On foot: Leaving Massouri heading towards Kasteli, pass the last group of buildings and studios (including the old climbers info booth). Look for the white roadside Odyssey marker. Hike up the rough dirt road, at its end turn rigtht and head to a large boulder. Trail starts here.
Via scooter: Head past the roadside markers for both Odyssey and Kasteli, looking for a dirt road off to the right. This road then takes you to the large boulder. If on scooter its best to continue past the roadside marker, shortly after a sharp curve in the road look for a tight right hand turn leading up a steep cement road. Which quickly turns to dirt, continue on the dirt road to the large boulder mentioned above.

: ... : Odyssey
Ciao Vecchio means, "good-bye to problem solving."Named so because, apparently, the chalk gremlins have come out en mass to show you, step by step, tick mark by tick mark, which holds to grab. Stevie Wonder could red point this climb. Ciao is so well mapped out, in fact, that personally I'd drop it a grade, maybe two. (But I'll let the official "11a" grade stand here. Just sayin' it's REAL soft.)Move up a low-angle ramp until the wall steepens and the pockets deepen. Paint by numbers up the tick...[more] Browse More Classics in International
