Description [Suggest Change]

Across the valley from the caves and red walls of Aginonta you'l find a shady series of two crags of which have refitted hardware and buffed out with new routes as recently as 2015/2016. Listed as Arginota Valley, this moderates galore crag is near the valley floor and features three wall (left cave, middle wall and right wall). The neighboring Black Buddha sits atop a steep (and sunny) approach. Both areas face north providing a good shade option from mid-morning until dark. This sector has vertical rock, semi-longer routes with PLENTY of bolts and fixed lower-offs. More than 50% of developed routes are under 6a+, those pushing grades will find nearly 20 routes in the 6b-7a range. Hard-core crushers may like this area for mileage only.

This area is posted as No Dogs, as they scare the goats and livestock.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Located above the incredible Bay of Arginota Village.

Access is easy with a scooter or car and located 4 miles from Massouri. From Arginonta Village turn right after passing the Bee Shop, at first glance this looks like a parking area for the restaurant/bee shop or the church located on your left. Continue on and at the back of the lot a road narrows for about 200m before turning to dirt. The dirt road is easy to navigate on the scooter and recommended to park before the gate and under a large olive tree. Pick your destination path through the gate (right) and skirting the base (visible) or by foot walking the road to a direct approach trail/hill. The valley floor is farmland/graze-land and marked off for trespassing. Recent signs are posted for access or trail entry points.
