Corinthia is a blessed place, surrounded by mountains and sea, plains and lakes, canyons and scenic paths in nature that attract anyone who wants to get their adrenaline pumping, by doing many kinds of activities.
Among the many choices you have, climbing in mountainous Corinthia is a fact! Every enthusiastic climber will find the right location to get to know the satisfaction of climbing and the thrill of the top, and one of them is the “Frygani” climbing field, in beautiful Kefalari of the mountainous part of Corinthia.
Frygani is an extensive limestone hillside with conglomerate inclusions and is located at the eastern foothills of Mount Ziria at the beginning of the plateau of Lake Stymphalia. It reminds of Meteora very much, but the rock is much stronger and richer in features such as pockets, holes and flops and with the significant difference that here the routes are densely secured.
The environment is idyllic among vines, trees and vivid colors, especially in autumn. It is about 120 km from Athens, via the highway, and it is a great choice for a one-day visit.
It is also an ideal starting point, or even a finishing point, to explore the climbing fields of the Peloponnese. Climbing in the “Frygani” field is ideal any time of day and any time of year.
