Climbing at Leonidio at the crag Twin Caves
Twin Caves, one of the best sport climbing crags at Leonidio in Greece. Presented by Vertical-Life.info as part of our series 'Crags for each season', for which the routes and topos can be downloaded free of charge until Wednesday.
Situated on the east coast of the Peloponnese in a valley at the foot of Mount Parnon, Leonidio is a beautiful Greek town about 3.5 hours from Athens with about 6,000 inhabitants. A breataking, 250m red limestone cliff towers above Leonidio and offers delightful climbing on excellent rock. Due to its mild temperatures, Leonidio is a great winter climbing destination.
Twin Caves is one of the best crags at Leonidio. The area is famous for its variety of routes, grades and also climbing styles, that range from tricky slabs, to vertical routes and pumpy overhangs past typical tufas. As the name suggests, the area is comprised of two caves. The first cave is the biggest and almost completely overshadows the second, smaller caves. The routes at Twin Caves are safely bolted and there is good parking. The approach is very short and the site below the crag is nicely arranged. As the crag is rather new and there is still some loose rock, a helmet is recommended.
