Overview

Stontzi is a climbing rock just north of the village of Pades, one of the villages that act as trail-heads for Smolikas. The rock is located in amazing scenery between Smolikas and Timfi, with many routes for Intermediate to Expert climbers. 
The rock was fitted with bolts for sports climbing in 2009 after a large contribution of the villages cultural society and with the contribution of volunteers.
The best time to climb in the area is between April and November, with the best season being the summer since the elevation keeps the area cool. Due to the orientation of the rocks it is also possible to climb all day long since one is East and one West resulting in at least one being on the shade all day.
