Description 

The Olypmic Wall take a bit more effort to reach than some of the other walls near Masouri but if you're looking for entertaining routes with cool features at a not-so-steep angle, it's worth a visit. The style is generally a little more technical than the nearby Odyssey Wall and generally not quite as good, in our opinion. Nevertheless, you can escape the crowds a bit and have a fun day here.

Getting There 

From Masouri, drive north towards Kastelli. After the super sharp right turn in the highway, take the next hard right up a steep concrete driveway. This road quickly turns to dirt. Stay on the low road and aim for a two big boulders up yonder. Park by the boulders and a trail heading up hill. This is the same parking as for Odyssey Wall. Start up the same trail as the Odyssey approach. But after a couple minutes of hiking, take the trail going off to the right and follow green and red paint dots on the rocks up to the crag. The wall is higher than many of the walls in the vicinity so allow a little extra time and effort to get there. Many of the routes get sun after 1pm.

he obvious featured and chalked up line that slowly trends up and right to anchors in the hole. Tricky moves going to the second bolt get you established on the gently overhanging wall. Pull on generally good holds with the occasional not-so-great hold while fighting the pump in your forearms. Thank baby Jesus when you reach big holds in round hole about 3 meters below the anchors. Get a good shake here (and perhaps even if a kneebar if you're cunning enough) . Easier moves, but still no gimme, ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
