Description 

This crag was mostly bolted in 2010 and became more publicly available in 2012. It's north facing so it's shaded all day and catches some wind. There are 30-ish climbs ranging from 6a+ to 8a+ (5.10b to 5.13c). Some of the popular routes are already getting polished but it's still new enough that I broke off a tufa so be careful hangin out below the climbs. These are very good climbs so expect this not to be much of a secret...

Getting There 

Take the beautiful scooter ride over the hill as for The Beach, and at the last bend in the road take a left on a short dirt road. Follow the paint up and over the hill straight ahead of you (slightly right).

Syrtaki Lessons begins with some great stemming between the wall and a LARGE stalactite before depositing you at a rest beneath a bouldery pocket section just prior to accessing the main tufa system that you will ride all the way to the chains. The first bit of the tufa is the crux, which ends at a rather blank ledge. If you can can make it to the ledge there is an opportunity to rest up before you have to gun it for the chains. The final 30-40ft. downshifts in difficulty, but is consisten...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
