Description 

Extremely sharp gray slabs. Densely bolted with the exception of long, easy run-outs to the anchors. Many climbs are one or two-move wonders followed by an ambling search for decent enough rock for an anchor. They serve as excellent reminders that some rock just doesn't need to be bolted.

I've heard many stories of people climbing through nearly new shoes in a day here. Not from toe-dragging but from having needle like spires pierce the rubber and the last of the shoe like a nail or cut like a knife. This also happened to my climbing partner. Be warned.

This would be a good crag to go climbing with children, provided they're pretty hardy, can climb in tennis shoes, and don't mind some very prickly rock.

Getting There 

The easiest way to approach, in my opinion, is by taking the a boat to Irox and then walking left from the "dock" towards Eros. You will see signs for Miltiadis. Do not take the trail to the base of Eros but instead stay low on the Telendos trail until you see signs directing you up and right towards Miltiadis and the Chapel of St Constantine. Approaching in this fashion will also let you consider climbs at Irox and Eros.
