Summary

Interesting crag with great views over Lara Bay area. Home to several easy slab routes and a few traditional lines. In places exceeds 40m in height.
Directions:Starting from Ineia, pass through the village heading west. Pass the coop bank and coffee shop on the right, and at the three way crossroads take the lower (left) road. Follow the small road for approx 1.5km. The rock appears on the right hand side of the road. Continue on the road for 200m more, and park in the obvious area 20m below the west face of the crag.
Aspect:Faces South/West South face gets the sun most of the day. West face is in the shade until around midday.

Notes:If you like easy climbing, then a good day out during the summer is to visit Alikou in the morning, have lunch in the shade of the big tree, then visit Gerakopetra north face in the afternoon.
Descent:For descent simply walk off the back of the crag, or rap back down the way you've come - will require a halfway pit stop (MAKE SURE TO KNOT YOUR ROPE).

1   F4+ 25m
Follow the left hand-side of the crag to about two thirds height. Ring bolt lower-off.
2   F4 25m
Climb about 2m right of the previous route to about two thirds height. Ring bolt lower-off.
3   HD 40m
Layback up the huge flake (unsettlingly hollow), traverse right and finish up the crack.
4   F4 25m
Tackle the large slab starting 2m right of the previous route. Below the half height bulge follow the left bolt (a couple of long quickdraws useful). Take the bulge direct. Belay at the top via the ring bolts, and either walk off the back, or rap back down.
5   F3+ 38m
This route starts a few metres off the ground, on the broken rocks, about 4m right of the previous route. Belay at the top via the ring bolts, and either walk off the back, or rap back down.
 
The next three routes all start at the base of the crag, amongst spikey scrub. They are tricky to grade as they all have short bouldery starts, followed by easier climbing. The grades reflect the majority of the route, ignoring the severity of the starts. If the base is too overgrown, then start a couple of bolts up.
6   F5a 42m
Starts at the base of the crag, a few metres right of the previous route. Belay at the top via the ring bolts, and either walk off the back, or rap back down.
7   F4+ 42m
Starts at the base of the crag, a few metres right of the previous route. Belay at the top via the ring bolts, and either walk off the back, or rap back down.
8   F4+ 42m
Starts at the base of the crag, a few metres right of the previous route. Belay at the top via the ring bolts, and either walk off the back, or rap back down.
