Olympos has both a very ancient archeological site and a beautiful beach with lots of rocks to climb on.
There are three main sectors. Cennet (Heaven) is on the coast but away from tourists, Horguc (Hump) is next to the river and Cirali is on the way to mount Olympos.

Rock climbing in Olympos
One of the most famous hostels in Europe: kadirstreehouses.com/
There are many other hostels and hotels in the area where you can just walk in. The busy season is from May to September. It is still warm enough to climb otherwise. Doesn't rain very often.
There is also Deep Water Soloing in an hour of boat ride away. But I haven't done that so you are going to have to ask around. People in Kadir's will probably know about it.
There are buses from Antalya bus terminal which can drop you on Kadir's front door. The area is a valley leading to the sea. There is a certain time of the year where sea turtles lay eggs on the beach. Be careful to obey the warning signs.

|I've heard rumors of an international climbers festival in Olympos at the end of October (2011). Does anyone out there know anything more about this? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!|
