Another decent crag overlooking the sea, although this time the access is through a zigzagging maze of crumbling roads that were presumably intended to serve a villa complex that never got built.
Good news for the crag, and for the locals who keep their colourful beehives here.
Four more 🎶 routes to go at, but on completely contrasting rock – Anatoli looks more like a typical grey slabby limestone crag covered in goute d’eau pockets that you might find in Provence; the difference being that in France it would be polished to a high sheene and utterly joyless, whereas here there’s great friction and positive holds (or holes).
Here’s Helen on the first 🎶 route, Christina, 5b
And Jim on Aristotilis, 6a+
Then we did the remaining 🎶 routes: Smiling Tsouk, 6a+ linking big pockets on steep ground and not too tough for the grade
… and finishing up with KtR, 6b – also good but thinner.
