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.

Lovely place to climb © Blimey
Symplegades is a peculiar work of nature being made up of two rock walls, which face each other. This is possibly the best sector for kids and families on the island due to the short approach trail and flat area below the routes. It is often cool and breezy here. There are more routes on various buttresses running away leftwards.
Drive up the bends heading from Myrties towards Pothia and at their top turn left and follow 'to the climbing' signs to parking by a gate (scooters only) Walk up the drive then follow a track left for the 'other' sectors or up the hill into the canyon on the right for Symplegades
Walking Time: 15mins
|Now becoming more and more polished due to groups climbing there with no acumen to split up and visit remoter crags.|
