Anavra, Magnesia Prefecture

Anavra, Magnesia Prefecture

The rocks of Avavra are must in the area of Magnesia. Sectors A & B have vertical walls where you have to be used in climbing without big footholds with relatively large holds. Also sector B has two very beautiful, overhanging routes.

To reach the climbing sector of Anavra, follow the road that leads to the city of Almyros and to the village Anavra. In the middle of the route you will see the rocks on your left. It is very easy to identify them, because they are the first rocks you will see in the area. While you drive, you will see a church on your right side. 300m after the church you should turn left to a dirt road. Drive for 5 more minutes and park your car. From there follow the marked path to the climbing sector. Most of the routes have 2 pitches so it’s better to climb with a 60m long rope and the helmet is considered essential because of many loose rocks.

SECTOR C

After the church you see on your right side to reach the sectors A&B(to the direction of Anavra) continue for 4 more kilometres until you find a mine on your left side. Continue for little more and turn right to a dirt road which leads to a farm. You can park your car in the end of the dirt road or continue for few more meters on a bad quality dirt road to your left. The climbing sector is close to the end of the dirt road. The sector has a south orientation which forbits climbing in the summer, but makes it very pleasant during the rest months.
