Kastritsa Infos


The climbing area of Kastritsa is one of the oldest climbing places in the city of Ioannina. Is the first place where the people to really climb in the area, organized with bolts. They used it - not only and still do - as a training place for people who want to learn the sport. It has traditional, as well as other routes. All bolts where replaced in 2005-2006, when also new lines were added.
kastritsa is better found by taking the road that goes round the "Pamvotida" lake. After we pass Anatoli, at the end of Katsika, we turn left towards Loggades. After a while we see on our right a hill with rocks and there we are. Only 15' from the center of the city. Best time, winter afternoons and summer mornings because it faces west and after a certain time, the sun shines on the rocks.
