This range consists of 8 sets with 138 holds all together. The mail goal was to create a rock like aesthetic range mainly for amateur climbers. It is good for lead climbing -each set contains enough holds for a lead route. Also good for up to 40% degree wall. There are also three a bit more challenging sets , "Matala Incuts", small holds that will challenge climbers if set on a overhung wall, the same aplies for the sets:"Matala Slopers" & "Matala Totem" .
A little bit about the history of the name. Matala is an area located in Crete, a southern Greek island. It is well know for its stunning rockface which you can see on the photo below. Many artificial caves were created in the Neolithic age and later , a lot later,n the 1960s, the caves were occupied by hippies.
On the little fishing village called "Matala" (now a very touristic destination) one can see a Totem-like wooden sculpture carved on a 600 year old olive tree .
Sorry to say that the rockface is not offered for climbing , lots of loose rock and archaeologists will make sure of that!
