Hi all. I'm planning on leaving the country this coming June, and I want to live somewhere with great climbing. I've taken two climbing trips to thailand in the past and have loved it. But this time, part of me wants to go somewhere new...my question is, for someone who prefers trad over sport, and multi over single pitch, does greece compare to thailand? On that note, given my preferences stated above, do you have any foreign location with great climbing that you would recommend?
thanks for any suggestions.

greece will be hot as hell during summer.

i would really reccomend the alps. doesnt really matter which country; france, switzerland, italy, austria, slovenia, they all have a lot of trad.

We went to Greece-Meteora in Oct. Beautiful site up by monastaries. It reminded me of The Needles-kinda spooky. Conlomerate and a bit of loose rock but classic routes. Some is bolted. Camping is avail near rocks. We'd go back if we could afford it.
