A popular crag right next to where the ferry that takes you to the climbing stops on Telendos. It has routes of all grades from, pleasant slabs to overhanging test pieces. The rock can sometimes be sharp, and the crag has the advantage of getting the shade for most of the afternoon. The water below the crag is beautifully clear and great for swimming.
