Narthaki Lamia

Climbing crag Narthaki in Lamia

The crag Narthaki” is located next to the city of Lamia, at the foot of Othrys. Named after the ancient city Narthakion” that was built on the hill above the crag (continuing the path to the village Limogardi). Consists of three crags. The “Lower crag“, the “Up” and “First”. The “First” and oldest can be accessed from the X.Y.T.A (the place where they throw the waste of the city). The sector has only six routes which were opened in 2003 for climbing schools and basically now it has been abandoned.

The other two sectors have common access (located on highway Domokos) and were opened in 2007. The routes have short length(8-18 meters) but it is perfect for an afternoon workout. The grades are up to 6c+. Because most of the routes are short the grading can be considered a little ‘hard‘. The anchors have automatic carabiners with wire gate for direct abseiling.

The orientation is north-east and the shadow falls from noon in the “Down” sector. TheUpper” sector is south oriented with shadow during the afternoon.
