A gift from the gods, Iannis has moderate, technical gray slab climbing on the left, steep 'n' stout tufa/pocket climbing on the right, some crazy long, rifle-esque orange wall routes around the corner, and a monstrous, testosteroneous, showcase beast of a 13d (8b) that wags out the maw of a cave like Satan's own tongue. A climb so vicious it'll leave you whimpering in the corner, biting a pillow in the fetal position. Giver a whirl!
Plenty of all-day shade (at least on the south/right side) and enough goat poo to fill the pool at the hotel Philoxenia.
OH! And bring a photographer or three. Pics so good Chris Sharma will be asking YOU for an autograph.
It's just. That. Good.
March up the trail in the a.m. (you'll wither to a raison in the sun), head left on the crag path, look up 'n' right. When you see the deep cave dripping with Petzl sponsor draws, get on your knees, and thank the maker that you didn't bother with law school. You just found all that you need in this life.
Send, and now go get you some well-deserved ice cream.
