Climbing in Turkey
by climbers ... for climbers


Further south there is another excellent sports climbing area in Olympos. Here there are over 250 routes on perfect limestone across all grades. The rock climbing has slabs with small pockets which require technical, balancy moves through to tufas and huge roofs. Some of the crags also have the advantage of only being a few hundred metres from the beach. This area also has several walls that are suitable for deep water soloing (DWS) with the sea being deep enough to attempt routes from 8 to 35m long. These walls can be approached by boat.
