St. Nicolas crag is situated in a beautiful deep canyon just 10min by car north of Volos at the foot of Mt. Pelion, just above the hiking path to Makrinitsa. This crag is the most popular rock climbing place in Pelion due to it's high number of routes and proximity to the town of Volos.
How to reach the area?
From Volos city you follow the signs to Pelion (Mt). Heading north you reach a point where the road goes along the river bed. After 100 meters you see signs to Makrinitsa. You take the left option and immediately you cross the river by a small bridge and you follow the road for 400 meters until you reach the village of Agios Onoufrios (Αγιος Ονουφριος). You pass the square and continue to the end of the village until you reach the dirt road by the riverbed. You cross the bridge and turn left following the dirt road for 100 meters up to the parking space next to the river. There is a small stone house there. You follow the path that start from the house and after some meters you take the steps to the left until you reach the small chapel of St. Nicolas. Bingo! You are already at sector A.Read more...
If you ask a Greek person which is the most beautiful place in mainland Greece for sure you will stumble immediately on the name of Mount Pelion (or Pilio) in Magnesia area. Touristic, magic, wild, crowded and secret in the same time Pelion has everything for everybody. I just can’t imagine any other place in the world where you can swim in the sea, rock climb and ski all in the same day and all in a 20km space. Ok, this page is about climbing so I will glorify the region another time and now I will talk about the climbing part.
Despite the general lack of information, in Magnesia and Pelion there are many beautiful places for rock climbing and bouldering. Over 10 different areas with more than 500 routes make out of Pelion a place worth visiting if you are a climber, not to mention the dozens of virgin rocks inviting climbers with creative minds and strong hands to drill new routes.
The routes are for almost everybody: starting from beautiful and long 5a-5c, perfect for the greenhorns to get a little yellow, continuing with challenging 6a-6c, good for the yellow ones to get even more yellow ;), followed by a lot of serious 7a-8a to put your muscles to the test. For Chuck Norris unfortunately there are not many choices in Pelion … so if you are focus only on 8b and higher you will need to wait while the local climbers are growing bigger muscles or wings by the case : )Read more...
This week we decided to explore the Karoutas canyon near Agria village. Just near the climbing places in Agria we observed a wild canyon leading to a ruin monastery, the place looked very beautifull from above, so we decided to take a closer look. Following the dirt road to Stavros Monastery (just above Agria football field) we take the path marked with red dots on the left of the road. As soon as the path reached the river bed we leave the path and start following the canyon that is full of vegetation at this point. After fighting the vegetation for a short time we reach the point where the canyon is passing between two big cliffs (40-50 m). Soon we reach a huge garbage place, people are trowing the garbage from the road 50m above directly in the canyon below (no more comments, just pure disappointment). After a while we reach an beautiful open space, with lots of wild olive trees surrounded in all ways by big rocks. The place looks attractive for climbing and bouldering, so we will need to come again to have a closer look.Read more...
