Kalogria

Climbing in Kalogria, Achaia 

Kalogria is the first crag developed in the northwestern Peloponnese. It consists of over 80 routes, most of which are sporty without missing the traditional technical routes(two pitches) with grades up to 7a. The rock is solid, gray, vertical and quite overhang in some places reaching a maximum height of 70 meters at the highest sector (strofilia). It also has very easy climbing 5-6a+ in the School and hard routes in the range of 8a in the sector Lady. The crag is on the right as you approach from Araxos towards Kalogria. The best time for climbing is at the end of October until March. In Summer you will find shade only in the sector Lady after 16.00 in the noon and in the morning after 11.00-12.00 all the sectors are in the sun, which makes climbing imposible

    the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like
    this one these days.

  5. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already
    😉 Cheers!

  6. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my
    end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Fantastic beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your web site, how
    can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal.
    I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast
    provided bright clear concept

  8. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague
    who had been conducting a little research on this.

    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that I discovered it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this issue here on your website.

    good, however suppose you added a headline to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean Kalogria – Greek
    Climbing Guide is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  11. May I simply say what a relief to uncover an individual who truly understands what they’re discussing on the internet.

    of the story. I was surprised that you’re
    not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
