Details

The mountains of Crete are amongst those places on Earth which seem to have been made to satisfy the desires of the most insatiable climbers. Paradoxically, sport climbing here has until recently been a minority interest, limited to a few remote spots in the Asteroussia mountains. Today things have changed a lot! After the first book on Kapetananiá, this second volume invites the reader to discover 7 new climbing sites across the island. Whilst the admiration for the beauty and power of the scenery remains the same, the sectors described here are definitely more sporty. However, beginners are not forgotten in this guide book which takes the time to transmit the unique flavour of each of these areas of vertical freedom.

To put you on the right track, for each site there is a road map, a more detailed map for pedestrian access and concise information and diagrams. There are plenty of comments too, both on the sectors and the routes themselves, which try to in form and sometimes amuse, without spoiling the “on sight” aspect. Finally, if Kapetanania and it's little white book remains interesting from a wilderness point of view, the sport climber will certainly appreciate this new volume, all in black.

The most interesting point for those who want to discover the island through climbing which is now blessed with many new routes is the variety, both of the sites described and the range of difficulties encountered. Will the (fanatical) climbers/openers who operate here turn Crete into a well know destination? The answer maybe in these books, black or white. But above all it is for you to judge by the fun you will have climbing there.

Sites described: 8 sites distributed from north to south of the island - Skoteino, Malia, Plakias, Dhamnoni Bay, Agiofarango, Agios Ioannis, Treis Ekklisies, Koumoi - representing more than 250 lengths, almost all of them recent and unpublished.
