Hiking out on the coast trail to the South Face.


The South Face of Telendos is a huge face with tons of new route potential and hosts the longest routes in the area.

Getting There 

From the ferry walk south on shore past about 4 restaurants and make a right between two restaurants. Walk about one restaurant back and hang a left at the dead ends. Before the steps leading down to a beach is a trail going off to the right through some goat gate on the top of ridge. From the goat gates you will walk about 30 minutes west on the south coast of the island depending on where you are going.
