Climbing in Chatzouri, Peloponesse

The climbing crag of Chatzouri is located in Achaia prefecture about 45 km away from Patra. Chatzouri is a summer haven for climbers of Patras because of the altitude and the north-western orientation. It consists of two climbing secots. The Lower, with height about 80m on a gray wall, and the Upper cave where the overhang exceeds the 45 degrees and rightly is called as one of the  temples of sport climbing in Greece.

You pass several villages such as Zisimaika and the following village Pigadia turn left to Charavgi. Just before Charavgi turn right on a dirt road, which after 3 km takes you to an area with excavations. Park there and within 5 minutes you are in front of the 80-meter wall (Lower Sector). Free camping is allowed in the place you park but take all the necessary supplies with you.
