About Anavarza:

From the old bus terminal in Adana (Yuregir Otogari) take the Kadirli bus and get off at the Ayse Hoca (Anavarza) village. From there its another 5 km to the climbing area. You can walk or rent a horse and carriage. Camping is forbidden because Anavarza is an archeological site. Please take care not to damage anything especially of historical value!
There is no medical aid available in the village. The nearest first-aid center is in Kadirli(20 km) or at Adana Hospital.
Nearest town or city: Ayse Hoca (Anavarza)
Directions: For the Americans that are stationed in Incirlik (in the three cooler seasons): head past Snake Castle, and take the left at the very next round-about. continue on that road for approximately 30 minutes (its been a while) about 5 miles on the right hand side of the road is a very tall cliff, it is sort of hard to get to without better directions (sorry) but if you take a right into a village (I think there is a sign for anavarsa) go through that village, and before you come to the next village there is a left turn that stays parrallel with a creek (wich is often full of cute turtles) follow it a short distance (appr. 3/4 of a mile) and take a right onto a cow pasture area, and you should be there. If any of the locals come by they will want you to give them money, A few million lira should suffice, I didn't have any money on me one time and gave the guy a mountain dew, it is really up to you, but trying to keep good relations with the locals is a good thing in any climbing area. If you are Ammo tell John Bousa he is a dumb ass. (from utah with love)
