Pyli (Little Gorge)

Climbing in Pyli (Little gorge), Trikala

Pyli (Little gorge) has established itself as the ideal climbing crag in Greece during the summer. The great variety of routes for all climbing grades along with the cool temprerature that prevails in the george are the main reasons why Pyli is such a great climbing destination. Like Mouzaki the equipers of the crag have built a platform in front of the climbing area for camping during the night. The rock is characterized by tufas (Kalymnos style) and overhang on most of the routes. Every year the local mountaineering club (EPOP Pylis) is organizing a national climbing meeting in Pyli during the summer with great participation of climbers.


Access – Approach

From Thessaloniki to Pyli Gate is approximately 250 km. After Trikala, like for Mouzaki you will see signs to the village Pyli. Once you reach Pyli you follow the main road and continue towards Pertouli Arta. In about 5 km after Pyli you will see a narrow bridge over the river. After the bridge at 50 meters left and right you will see two large openings of the road. Park your car in one of the opennings. The trail starts uphill on the right side of the road to a relatively large dirt road and ends up in the creek that passes in front of the climbing area. If you follow the stream upward, including a large pipe that carries water, you will find the crag very easily. You can find water from the pipe so don’t carry too much with you. Total walking from the car is about 20 minutes.
