Greece is a sunny country with blue skies, gorgeous beaches and rugged mountains. As a climbing destination it is mostly known thanks to Kalymnos, the 'gold standard' of sport climbing worldwide. Meanwhile, the cliffs in the rest of this stunning country remain a well-kept secret.
This book will introduce you to the best sport crags in the rest of Greece. It will help you discover world class venues combining Kalymnos-quality cliffs with beautiful countryside, no crowds and perfect conditions.
Created by the same team behind the successful Kalymnos edition, in the same style and quality, this guide book features full-color pages, custom photo-topos and maps, a crag planner and select routes in 29 different crags around Greece, including:
The 'sacred'' conglomerate towers of Meteora
The Kalymnos-style sport crags of Pyli and Mouzaki
More hardcore sport climbing at Chatzouri, Alepochori and Kleisoura in the Patras area
The solid limestone massif of Varasova, which rises from the sea to 917
The up-and-coming crags of Leonidio and other outstanding cliffs in the Peloponnese (Nafplio, Zobolo, Lagada and Nedousa)
The islands of Anafi and Symi, two little gems of the Aegean
Three crags on the famous island of Crete: Voulismeno Aloni, Plakias and Tersanas Cave (also know as the 'new Grande Grotta!')
Select crags in the Athens area, the only capital with such concentration of quality climbing so close to the city.
This guide book does not include the crags of Kalymnos.
