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

Ghost Kitchen is a very popular area. The dominant feature of the cliff is the central bowl with stalactites and tufas protruding from the rock just like enormous mushrooms. On either side are some medium difficult slab climbs, while the pleasant gentle slab located slightly lower to the right offers decent slab climbing almost always in the shade.

Approach notes

Drive through Arginonta and on round the bay until the cliff appears on the right. Park by the steep track and follow it and the good path above to the cliff.

Walking Time: 20mins

Great crag. RESISTA is one of the best routes on the island but soft, more like easy 6c. Ghost Rider is a brilliant pitch! June 13
