Ladiko is the largest section on Rhodes. The area is located above the Aegean Sea with spectacular views. The rock is mostly vertical limestone and a little sharp and the rock in the cave is a little different. It has mostly nice belay areas and the left wall would be suitable for climbing with kids.

The area is East facing and get shade in the afternoon around 3 pm.

There is a small local climbing community here of about a dozen people. Other than them you are not likely to find anyone here.

Getting There 

Ladiko is about 17 km south of Rodos Town. You can take the main hwy or coast road. The roads are not well marked.

From Rodos head south for about 17 km to Faliraki which has nice restaurants on the eastside of town. From Faliraki go south about another 2 km and look for signs to Antony Quinn and Ladiko beach. Going south this maybe difficult to find so if you don't see signs at 3 km turn around and going North it is easy to locate. This may be due to ongoing construction.

Follow the road and look for signs to the Cathrin Hotel. Pull into the hotel parking lot and then pull back out and take your first dirt road on the left. You will going uphill on this road and at the high point park. Don't go down hill as the road is bad and only 300 ft long.

Park and walk down the dirt road toward the sea and take the footpath to the right. Go through a little fence with a makeshift gate. Walk about 5 minutes and you should see the cave above you.

Don't miss this route! Steep tufas and columns lead up and a little left from the mouth of the cave. It competes with the best 6b tufa routes on Kalymnos.There is a 5.11+ extension but the bolts maybe of questionable quality....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
