This is a guidebook describing the sport climbing found close to the city of Chania in northwest Crete. In total 6 different climbing areas are described, detailing nearly 200 routes across all grades and styles.
The main sport climbing areas are at Kalathas, Monte Vardia, Stavros, and Theriso, which are close to the city of Chania. The vast majority of these routes are single pitch with some multi-pitch routes around 100m long. Further south near the famous Samaria Gorge National Park is Mount Gigilos. Here there are a number of very long multi-pitch routes that range from 600m to 1,500m long. These routes are primarily trad routes that demand a mountaineering approach. Also included on the south coast is Marmara, where there is climbing straight off the beach.
All the single pitch and shorter multi-pitch routes are shown on colour photo topos, whilst the longer multi-pitch routes are shown on hand drawn topos. Published in January 2007, this guidebook is in both Greek and English text.
