SKALIA AREA


A fine set of cliffs scattered around the wide open amphitheatre above Skalia village. These include the ever-popular Ghost Kitchen and a small collection of lesser crags. Skalia Pillar is quite popular and Skalia Balcony less so. Skalia Cave is the reserve of the hard-men and sees little action now that the competition circus has moved on
