This rock looks like a sail in the ocean of stone from afar and henceforth its name Parus (the sail). It is situated near the city of Foros, 50km from Yalta, 15 minutes on foot up from Sebastopol-Yalta highway.
Routes are mainly slab climbing from 6b to 7b with over 30 of them, with a couple of multipitches going to the top. Very technical place.
This is also a common camping area for people climbing multi-pitch in the region, i.e. on Mt Chelyabi.
Although this is mainly a one-pitch top rope area, one multipitch exists with 3 bolted pitches, Misiatchne Siajvo, meaning Moonlight, on the Southern wall.
See here for a pretty comprehensive topo by sector. Gradings are on the French scale.
