A new rock-climbing area has been recently developed east of Neapolis, near the Petrified Forest, along the road to the trailhead for Aghia Irini. Fixed protection and anchors have been put in and a number of routes have been established. Some routes located on the sunny side of the cliff are suitable for climbing in the winter; other routes are located in the shade and are suitable for climbing during hot summer months.

Local accommodations cater to climbers.
