Description1000 limestone routes and counting! This area is best from Fall - Spring, but climbing is possible (even enjoyable) in the shade in summer.
As routes are developed climbing-leonidio.com/en.html is periodically updated. It is a great, free resource.
Great camping is available at Camping Semeli. It is right on the beach and the people who work there are extremely kind and helpful. There is also a climbing shop / cafe in town.
Getting ThereFrom Athens expect a 3.5 hr drive (even though Google says 3). Start on a wide, fast highway then twist, turn, and climb your way along the coastal road. Enjoy the view, try to avoid car sickness. Once in Leonidio you are 5 minutes from the beach and 5-30 minutes from the parking for the multitude of climbing sectors.
