|Elati is a very nice place for climbing for the most of the year up on the mountains.
It's a not a big crag (7 routes only), but it's a very good choice for the hot summer days.
The place called Red Rock and it's near the village of Elati, in 1100 meters altitude.
To get there you just continue the road after Pili for 18 Km. When you reach the village turn right at the second road and continue for about 300 meters. Then you turn right and after 50 meters park your vehicle.
The approach is about 10 min. walk in the forest.
The type of rock is limestone but not so solid. Because of the altitude, some routes are a little bit rotten but it's not so dangerous.
The orientation is NorthWest, so it's in shade to the noon.
