Description

Şahınkaya is the 2 kilomater long crown jewel of Trabzon climbing. This Magnificent south facing cliff sits above the friendly village of Doğankaya. As of 2020 this area contained nearly 100 routes with the potential to triple that number. This area is a moderate climbers dream come true with the bulk of the routes coming in at UIAA 7 or easier!!! The rock is made up of extremely featured limestone that is generally nearly vertical and very high-quality. Most of the development has taken place after 2015 and the bolt spacing on sport routes is very user-friendly. Bolted anchors can be found at the top of many quality traditional routes and a well maintained approach trail stretches along the base of the wall. has been very supportive of recreation with the addition of a trash receptacle, approach trails and two small gazebos with a picnic table at the base of the cliff.

Getting There

Şahınkaya is the name of the cliff you will be climbing on. From Trabzon drive 1 hour Southwest to Doğankaya. The cliff will be obvious as it is the skyline above the village, unless hidden in a mountain fog. Drive straight through (up hill) the one intersection in town and follow a steep paved road. Park at the third switch back corner that contains a trash receptacle and hiking trail located immediately under the cliff face. The approach time is between 5 seconds to 5 minutes depending on what sector you are walking to.
