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.

Approach – Access

From Patra follow the national road Patra-Pyrgos. Approximately 15 km after Patras turn left for the industrial zone and follow the villages Anemomylo-Kalamakio. 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.
