Is there sport climbing in Lefkada?

Post by Lena »

Hi everyone!
New here. Going to Lefkada (Vassiliki) for windsurfing a week this summer. Since I also love rock climbing I wonder if anyone here knows if there is any sport climbing on this island. I heard a couple of years ago that there could be a climbing club and some routes in Nidri, but now when I have googled I can not find any info. It does not have to be a big crag with lots of routes and definitely not hard climbing, since I am a mother of two children and turning 50 this year and totally happy with just a couple of easy routes - to have fun and to inspire the kids :D
Best regards,
Lena from Sweden

The big cliffs that you may have seen in photos are not good rock.
However, there exists (I have heard) a great potential for deep
water soloing. Enjoy the sun :-)

From what I read here some bouldering in Kathisma and a couple of (corroded) bolted lines
