We’re still in Greece, and having to dodge the weather a bit in order to climb. We spent four days in Leonidio. We stayed in a hotel with the most beautiful view I’ve ever had in my life. That said, the room was tiny and run down. There was a shower base but no curtain or anything, so showering meant spraying water pretty much everywhere all over the bathroom (necessary to remove all towels and toilet paper before bathing, and doing it quickly before the hot water ran out). But at night, we could hear the waves, and if I woke up, I would just count the waves hitting the beach and after a few minutes, I’d be out again. We also swam every day, since the beach was just right there in front of us.
Nearly everyone comes to Leonidio to sport climb, but we did one day of single pitch and two long climbs. I think the first one was the most impressive.
The next day we did this climb:
Sunday was incredibly windy, so we took our time going further south to Kiparissi. We haven’t climbed here yet; my partner had to work today and if he was going to be on a video conference call all day, I didn’t want to be in the tiny run down hotel room. We found something rather luxurious where we can also cook, and the weather should be a bit better tomorrow (today it’s a bit gloomy at best and rainy at worst)
