Plakias Crete

Climbing in Plakias, Crete

Plakias is a special climbing crag. Is consists of a solid vertical wall with crimps and some tufas. The first routes in Plakias were opened in 1980 but generally the crag was developed recently

The crag is next to the beautiful beach of Plakias so during the summer you can combine climbing and enjoying the sea. In the summer the crag is in the shade until 15.00 at noon. Be aware of the very windy days as climbing may be very hard and not enjoyable at all.
