Ok- first things first…
We are a small band of climbers / photographers from Athens. We are trying to get our home crags known to the climbing world. Most people overseas know Kalymnos and its fantastic tufa caves but very few suspect what they leave behind when they jump on their connection flight from Athens towards the islands…
We started this effort encouraged by foreign friends who have climbed with us and were completely blown away by the quality and variety of the crags around Athens. The world needs to know!
Today Athens has more than 33 sport climbing crags. More than 1100 lines. And apart from tufa caves that can easily rival those of Kalymnos it has unique marble climbing in 2500 years old quarries.
We started this effort 2,5 years ago and collected all these crags into a modern, full-color, 280 pages guidebook. The guidebook has been written in English in order to appeal to climbers of all nationalities. Now the guidebook is ready, waiting to be printed.
Funding is challenging these days in Greece. Therefore, we are asking the support for the global climbing community to make this guidebook happen.
Check it out, and if you like what you see spread the word:
