Looking south down the main face.


Northwest facing crag, shade most of the day. Mostly vertical limestone with some cracks, pockets and a tufa or two. Overlooking the Libyan sea on the south side of the island of Crete. With only two dozen routes you can climb this area out in 2 days. The Beach is only a few meters away.

Getting There 

Rent a car at the airport or ferry terminal or take the public bus from Rethimnon to Plakias. The wall is a 5 to 10 minute walk depending on where you stay. It's on the East end of the beach. Hard to miss!

Fodele 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  Europe : Greece : ... : Plakias
This route is setup to climb in two pitches, but if you have a 70 it's better as one pitch. The first half is really cool swiss cheese type rock, with a wide crack for the second half which is a little sharp, but still fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
