Climb - Sector Irox

A new sector on a face just 5 minutes from the sea with routes of all grades, from easy pleasure climbing to massive overhangs. Arriving at the cliffs directly by boat is a welcome change.


Climbing is extremely varied: the easy routes often very scraggy, whereas the difficult ones offer more athletic and juggy climbing. The best would be however, to try it out for yourself.

Access - Irox can be reached within 50 minutes from the harbour, following the path to Eros and then descent down close to the sea. However, Giannis the ferryman, will take you directly to the cliffs by boat, for a small fare.

There a so, so many different sectors to climb, the following being just a few examples.
1. Sallys boat trip - 3c
2. Primerov - 3c
3. Captain Jack - 4a
4. Pantelis sea jump - 5b
5. Cuobo - 7c. Short but powerful. Easier if you are tall!
6. Irox - 8a 20m. Steep and powerful.
7. Marmornei - 8a 20m. Bouldery start.
8. Helvet - 7a 30m. A fine steep and technical pitch.
9. Kyprios Angel - 7a 30m. Long and commitment.
10. More than mode - 7b 25m wall climbing with a bouldery crux.
11. Magma - 6b 20m. A single tufa climb. Worth the expedition to Irox, even if you come to climb this route only.
12. Xymos - 6b
13. The magic circle - 6a
14. Sole Fish - 6a
15. Swordfish - 6b
16. Hollenfieber - 7a
17. Yorkshire Pudding - 6c
18. 28 at 40 - 5c
19. The white rose = 6a 20m. A pleasant line leading up to the left side of a dubious block. Step right above it to a tricky finish.
20. Inglaton - 6c
