Climbing in Turkey
by climbers ... for climbers


Akyalar is a very cosy climbing area in a little bay, which is perfect for days you want to both swim and climb.

The white rock is very smooth and washed from the sea, with beautiful formations shaped by the seawater. On hot and humid days the salty crag can be quite slippery.

There have recently been other new climbing areas developed close to Gayikbayiri. Over 130 routes, mainly in the higher grades, have been opened. Unfortunately due to access permission these areas have not yet been published.
