LocationLocated between Crystal Cave and Crescendo sectors. At about 30 minutes from the goat gate locate Crescendo and hike up to the base of the buttress coming down its left side. Hike up next to the buttress until you locate the route.
Don't forget a photo as a lot of the coast looks similar.
To descend walk off down the North side. From the top of the route walk North to a saddle above the cliff band forming the North Face. From here hike right (East) above the cliff until you locate a carined trail leading down a vegetated slope. As you descend watch for a small white church on the ridge line as you will need to follow the trail to this church. From the church a nice trail leads to the shoreline and then head right down the shoreline back to the town of Telendos.
