Set in a wonderfully peaceful greenbelt north of Athens (there are also green butterflies there!), not far from Mount Parnitha and Pana’s Cave, climbers will think they’ve struck gold. All within a few kilometers of each other are fifteen different crags with every style of climbing imaginable. Staying beneath the Mikra Varasova crag is ideal for climbers with vans – you’re sheltered from view by towering trees, on flat ground, with the village of Fyli just a 5minute drive away with all the facilities you could ever need. Listen for the two owls who nest close by… though if you’re a light-sleeper, bring earplugs – they start hooting at 4a.m. The forests and crags surrounding Fyli are wonderfully peaceful and because of the number of crags around, you’re likely to be climbing alone.
