Megas Lakkos(the great pit), Tempi Valley

Megas Lakos is one of the most popular destinations among the climbers of Thessaloniki and Larissa.One of the characteristics of the sector is climbing on pockets, which requires balance on a vertical rock, but there is also a large cave on the right side of the sector that offers really difficult routes. The sector is suitable for clibing mainly during the winter, as the sun hitds the rocks at around 13:00 pm. You can climb during the summer, too, but only very early in the morning. You can camp in the flat area in front of the large cave. An important advantage of the sector is the existance of fountains with fresh water.


From Thessaloniki to Tempi, by the time you pass the bridge on your left, turn towards Stomio. Please check the coordinates for the access. The new highway probably impacted the access to the crag. To be honest, it is a bit difficult to find the path that leads to the crag. However, even if you don’t find the exact path, by moving right you will at some point end up below the crag.
