Description

Gerakios area is a group of cliffs above the village of Myrties, accessible from the upper road (one way from Myrties to Armeos).

Trois Ilots is one of the closest sub-areas of Gerakios, to the right of the Main wall, offering a nice view and technical climbing on a rather sharp rock.

The cliffs are oriented S-SW, so there's a shade until about 12:00-12:30.

In most cases route names are painted on the rock (though the painted grades may be slightly higher than in the latest guide book), so it's pretty easy to navigate.

There are couple of multi-pitch routes (5-6 pitches) that go all the way up, but be careful as they are located over rather busy area.

Getting There

Drive on the upper road from Myrties to Armeos (note: this is a one way road).

You can park either just before the first big right hand turn or shortly after the turn and then walk back a hundred feet or so. The best trail starts to the right (south) of the house. Just trying to go in the direction of the cliffs is not the best option as eventually you gotta go through the goat gates and there are thorny plants all over the place, so you better stick with official trail as described in the Aris Theodoropoulos book.

Walk to the closest wall (Main) is about 15 minutes.
