Crag features

Perhaps the best, and most varied, sport climbing on the island. Only a 3-minute approach from the parking. All-year climbing, even if winter can be very chilly. Forget it on high humidity and windless summer days.

Approach notes

From Nicosia, take the direction of Famagusta. After the roundabout with a MASSIVE mosque on the left, keep going and take the left at the next roundabout. From there the road winds up to the pass where sits the Buffavento restaurant, a lovely eating option after climbing, with jaw-dropping views of the Pentadactylos. For Garga follow the road down. 1km down you'll see the profile of Garga up on your left. Keep going a little and park. Follow the track up to the cliff.

Great crag. Grades a touch on the soft side.

Had a great week here in Apr 2014. Thanks to the local developers and bolters. No topo currently available, though there was mention of a commercial topo being in the pipeline. There are more routes added on the RH end of the crag too. Easy to find, down the hill from the Buffavento col cafe.
