Climbing in Corinthia
Combine your favorite hobby in the beautiful region of Corinthia with excursions and other activities. Get your adrenaline pumping by reaching the highest peak of the climbing field
Frygani and Mylos climbing field
48 densely bolted and thoroughly cleaned routes, with grades from 5a to 7b+, are waiting for you in the historic Corinthia region.
Frygani is a large limestone and conglomerate vertical wall, similar to the legendary Meteora cliffs but, in fact, the rock is significantly more solid and with features in abundance (pockets, holes and flakes). Another important difference: the bolting in Frygani is much denser!
Sectors Frygani and Mylos have already gained positive feedback from the climbing community and are totally worth your visit.
Tarsos climbing field
Tarsos is a new climbing field located near the village of Kato Tarsos on the plateau of Feneos, Corinthia. The area is also known as the Virgin of the Rocks, named after the impressive chapel built on the hill.
Starting the route from the village of Kato Tarsos a unique natural beauty awaits, with the impressive view of the mountain of Great Zireia. Arriving at the climbing area, you will find that a beautiful location, with large plane and fir trees, cold running waters and lovely green meadows.
A cluster of vertical rocks, almost smooth, with vertical irregular slits, awaits to remind you a little of the magic of the most famous rocks of Greece “Meteora”, as, due to the shape and the composition of the rocks, many call it “Meteora of the Peloponnese”.
The routes are relatively new and well secured. They are densely secured with large plugs with the use of resins. As the routes are still new the use of a helmet is necessary.
While gazing at the big rocks, a big slit will catch your eye. It is a cave, which, during the German Occupation, was used as a refuge by English paratroopers, who functioned as liaisons with the Greek rebels.
There are five fields in the area with enough tracks for every taste. In the photos you will see some of them.
