Santorini Greece, Area 2 which is located to the l...


Santorini is the idyllic Greek island with the pretty white buildings you see on post cards. Most people show up here to lounge on the beaches (available in several colors), drink cocktails, and stay up all night bar crawling/clubbing. If you can sneak away in the mornings while the rest of your group is sleeping (and your head isn't ringing too badly) then you can find a good deal of climbable rock on the east side of the island. Best if there's at least one functional belayer you can drag along. You'll probably be here in the summer and it does get hot, so get an early start and don't forget some water! The sectors can be reached from the towns of Kamari or Perissa.

Getting There 

Plane or ship from Athens. Popular tourist destination but don't expect to find many or any other climbers.
