Cyprus Climbs

This Rockfax Digital guide covers the five best crags and includes sport and trad routes. There is a great set of climbs in the Iniea area including the big block of Gerakopetra. At Episkopi is a super steep wall for hard sport and at Dhiarizos is a series of blocks and pinnacles that have now been bolted giving the island’s most popular crag. For trad climbers there is plenty to go at Cape Greko although many of these routes are now being bolted.

The Mediterranean island of Cyprus has a much longer climbing history than many would expect with some early ascents of trad routes on Cape Greko being made as long ago as the 1960s, mostly by British Army climbers. Further development occurred in the 1990s when a bunch of enthusiastic ex-pats put up many more routes on several crags across the island. More recently local climbers have put up a lot of sport routes on several new crags as well as bolting some of the older lines.
