Kyparissi Surprise

By Sherri Davy and Chris Craggs (Award Winning Guidebook Writer).

This was our second trip to the Peleponnese, but the first to the main central ‘finger’ in search of rock climbing venues. We spent several day at Leonidio, then followed the winding road over the mountains, to reach the brand new Fokiano to Kyparissi highway.

If Leonidio was noisy and busy then Kyparissi is the opposite – a tranquil oasis ringed by mountains and hemmed in by the sea.

The climbing is great, accessible and varied, with high quality equipment throughout. No polish and no crowds – just how we like it.

Love climbing at Kyparissi. We have had 3 separate trips to the area and love the place. Ideal for all levels of climbers. I can offer guides trips and coaching courses based at the Kyfanta Hotel.

New crags in Kyparissi

Angy Eiter explores the new climbing destination Kyparissi, Greece with the goal of completing first ascents in the perfect limestone.

“It was like a dream coming true, having the opportunity of finding a crag with so many untouched lines that you barely know where to start. Every climber could find his lifetime project here.” – Angy Eiter
