Considered by most visitors to the area to be the best cliff in Argolis with excellent access, superb rock, magnificent views  and great climbing. The situation at the top of Mt Didyma (1100m) gives an optimal climbing climate even when the coast is sweltering at 40°C, except in the winter when this is snow covered! The rock is not so sharp as at other cliffs in the area allowing a very technical climbing style. One attraction here is an area near the beginning of the cliff with a number of shorter extravagantly bolted (ca. every metre) routes for climbing schools and beginners to learn leading. 65 single pitch sport routes up to 30m, grades between 4b and 7b+. I minute walk in.

The Routes.

To pick out anything here from the mass of quality routes is virtually impossible but Prankster 6b, Massive Attack 6c+, Ektonisi 7b+, Summer Madness 6c+ and England 6a all get rave reviews, Sam´s Route 5b being probably the best route on the cliff.
