Trikala region – Little Gorge Pili

In the region of Trikala there is a summer time refuge for climbing, it’s name is Pili’s Little Gorge! It’s an amazing place, unique in the region of Trikala, in the Central Greece but also in the mainland of whole Greece! It’s a gorge that from the ens of Spring remain without water and you may climb all hot summer days, because the gorge is hidden apart in the trees and the temperature allows you to climb everyday and all day….with a rest time between 14:00 – 16:00 when the sun is vertical on the crag. There is also a potable water spring so you can stay there as long as you want and in more for your accommodation there is also a big wooden platform that you may camp. All routes are very well bolted with inox bolts and inox belays with carabiners,  you need a 70m rope for all routes and at least 15 quickdraws. To reach the crags, once you arrived at the city of Trikala, in the central Greece, you have to follow the main road that drives to the village of Pili. Once arrived there, you still stay in the same direction for the village of Elati, but once you’re passing a bridge after Pili, 100m form that bridge you will find the parking area of the crags. Park your car, and follow a dirt road in your right hand. Soon you will reach a river and after a while you will find a well signed path on your left that drives to the crags. Total 20 min of walk, but deserves it!!!

You will find plenty of very beautiful sport climbing routes….a real good training for the hot Greek summer days!!!
