Description 

Secluded, well bolted sport climbing on solid granite. Imagine a little slice of the City of Rocks floating in the Aegean.

The climbing here is divided into 9 sectors. Each climb has a plate riveted to the rock describing its rating and length. the naming scheme is: 1-(sector number)-(route number) and rating.

I found many of the 5c climbs to feel similar to 5.9s and the 6s similar to 5.10a.

The sectors closer to Xinara are often windy and were covered in a mat of lichen as of Autumn 2015.

Getting There 

The cleanest climbing is on the east side of the south-west facing massif. Approach this zone from the church in Tripotamos. Head west past the church (keeping the church on your left) and you'll see a tin sign pop-riveted to the rock wall for the footpath to Xombourgo (pronounced Somo-vourgo and translated to "ancient town"). You will continue past stone walled cow pens. Resist the urge to turn left towards the massif until you cross a black irrigation tube. You will notice quite a wide path from here switchbacking upwards to some granite flakes peeking out of the ground and you will see another footpath sign riveted to a rock flake. The approach meanders on easy terrain towards the mountain. I would recommend close-toed shoes and pants as there is quite a lot of stinging nettle and other plants of the prickly variety.

Approach from outside the town hall in Xinara (pronounced Kinara) for the West sectors.

As you approach Exomvourgo look out for the very well-made guidepost signs leading you to various sectors.
