Description 

This is one of the first areas to get development in Northern Cyprus. As of this writing there are about 43 routes here on vertical overhanging limestone. Easy to find right above the highway and only about 15 minutes drive from Girne. It gets afternoon shade and is probably comfortable to climb here even in the summer. Mustafa Konica has the only climbing gear shop in northern Cyprus and is worth checking out. He is a valuable source of information, and is also currently helping develop new routes, as well as offering guiding services. We stopped by and he made us coffee and we sat and chatted for a couple hours. I also walked away with some new gear. His shop is surprisingly well stocked. The address is 19 Hilal Sokak, Girne

Getting There 

Head east out of Girne and take Bes Parmaklar Cd. It heads up hill and after a few minutes you will see Garga Suyu above on the right side of the road. Park in the first dirt pullout on the right just after passing the cliff. Walk along the dirt road towards the cliff, near the highway you will see a trail headed up towards the base of Garga.

Highway to Heaven 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Europe : Cyprus : Garga Suyu
I highly recommend this route. Fantastic for the grade and area. Nice and long and not as sharp as some of the other climbs. Starts with some blocky ledges and then up the center of light colored rock face....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
