    We have been climbing around Ermione using the ‘Climb Argolida’ guide (2013) mentioned on this site in the Nafplio section (http://climbgreece.com/nafplio/).

    For what it’s worth we noted down some GPS coordinates of the sectors:

    – Didimon: Turn of the national road at N37 30.067 E023 11.455. Follow the small tarred road for more then 5 km until you reach the antennas at N37 28.560 E023 12.737. Drive slowly because the road is full of holes. Park the car and follow the stone men to descend 50 meters behind the parking to the crag. BTW the lower-offs are a bit odd here. We had some trouble to find out how they worked (but I think they are a bit deformed).

    – Pillars of the Wind: Parking at the windmills oin the top of the mountain at N37 28.618 E023 17.188. When looking down it is the big rock. We found some routes in the middle. But they are old and we did feel comfortable climbing here.

    – Rock of Ages: Found the crag on Google Earth at N37 30.041 E023 14.293. We tried to get to the crag but did not succeed. After the concrete road downwards the road becomes very bad and we decided to turn the car.

    – Katafiki: Nice sector very close to Ermione. Signs will lead you to the right place. Parking at: N37 25.149 E23 12.877 (near the chapel). Crag is on the left, cannot miss it.

    Hope somebody can use this info

    Hi René, thanks for the information. I was planning to visit this area (Didimon), but looking at this old topo I was wondering if the equipment would still be in an good condition. You commented the anchors, but what about the bolts? do they look safe? And would you say the crag worth a visit? Thank you!

    We climbed a couple a routes there (then it started to rain). The bolts look safe. No problem as far as we could see. There are plenty of routes. Not so long but it is a very nice area. The underground is very soft since you will be walking on a carpet of goat-shit 😉

    Furthermore I would recommend the Katafiki sector. A drive-in practically and very nice rock.

    Have fun
