Plomari Lesbos

Climbing in Plomari, Lesbos

Ιn September 2015 a climbing sector was created in Lesbos for the first time. It is situated in the area ‘PanagiaKrifti’ less than 10km from Plomari, 12 km from Agios Isidoros, approximately 50km from Mitilini and less than 30km from Vatera and Agiassos, on the characteristic grey wall, between the edge that separates ‘PanagiaKrifti’ from ‘Drota’. Twenty six sport climbing routes were bolted, with a variety in difficulty, by the climber and climbing trainer certified from the Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering and Climbing, Kostas Mougkolias. The project was financially supported by the luxury Ouzo Villas in cooperation with Plomari Forum, a non profit company for the development of the area (www.plomariforum.gr ), in an effort to promote and develop alternative tourism in South of Lesbos.

The rock is good quality limestone and is located 200m above the sea level. The climbing walls contain horizontal edges, holes and small cracks. The routes start on the edge, which offers spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.

From September until June it is possible to climb all day, however, during the warm months of July and August, climbing is recommended early in the morning or after 17:00.

In the past the place was used for extracting talc and marbles and it is named after that ‘Tis Kriftis Ta Marmara’ which means the marbles of Krifti

At the sea level, beneath  the sector there are rocks, which are ideal for water solo, traverse and boulder. Best seasons for such activities are spring, summer and autumn.

A little pool with hot spring water can be found by the sea, near the church, which offers a fantastic way to end a day of climbing!

Approach: From Plomari you are heading towards Palaioxori via Melinda. After you go past Melinda, follow the dirt road towards “PanagiaKrifti”. After approximately 2km, an a tight left turn there is a concrete fountain on the right side. This is  the place where you can park your car.

The marked path starts by the fountain and leads you to the climbing sector in 15min.
