Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

Sector E.T. is located in the fertile valley of Vathy near the village of Metochi. The name of the crag came naturally; viewed from a distance, the cliff forms a giant face that resembles E.T. The original routes are mostly smooth slabs or clean cut walls with lots of pockets. 

Development began on Sector Koukouvas,the big wall 500 metres away to the left, in 2012. A vague cairned track leads left from near the gate about 100 metres below the original ET buttress. This sector is north facing and shady all day.

The cave to the right of the main sector has also been equipped by Neil Gresham and features steep climbing on tufas and pockets.
