I will be in Athens May 5th-9th-ish, and roaming around on Crete from the 9th-22nd. Does anyone have any recommendations on places to meet climbers there? Would love to find some partners on here, but otherwise any gear shops/hangouts to ask around at?
I won't be in Crete the dates you mention I'll be in Athens if you are still here we can arrange some climbing,as for Crete here is a site that can help you
http://www.climbincrete.com/en/index.php also I saw at this mountaineering club in Heraklion (http://www.eos-her.gr/en/)that they have arranged climbing at the 20th and 21st of May at the Agiofarago crag maybe you can hook up with them, also there are I think a couple of climbing indoor gym I Heraklion and there are many outdoor crags in Crete in general.
