Crag features

A superb limestone boulder near Crete's only fresh-water lake. The problems described are on the boulder just beyond the one on the actual track. The much larger one visible from the other side of the lake is huge and seemingly holdless - waiting for someone who is prepared for glory!

Approach notes

On a nature reserve with signs for hiking footpaths. A dirt road runs along the side of the lake and leads all the way to the boulders. This is best reached by crossing over the river that runs into the lake (there is a path beside a taverna on the bend in the lakeside road). After the weir/bridge cross the fields to the dirt road or follow the paths through the wood (both are fairly obvious).

Yup the good boulder is about 50m further along the track from the very tall one. Go to the medium sized boulder on the LHS of the track as you head away from the lake and the good boulder is ca. 10m further on towards the lake shore. There a few other smaller boulders around on either side of the track. Landings around the good boulder are flat but a bit stony so a thin mat is a good idea. The tall boulder looks good in a scary sort of way but has some grim looking landings
