CLIMBING IN ATHENS

AND AROUND ATTICA

GENERAL INFO

Hi, this is a page for rock climbers and we hope you are one already. If you are not, we hope you become one soon. We are a bunch of enthusiastic climbers too. No need to advertise this and that, just let us guess. You are a climber or somebody who wants to give it a go, you happen to be exploring Greece, may have a pair of climbing shoes in your rucksack with a secret desire to find a decent rock on the way, and you will spend a day or two in Athens. If our guessing is close to right, by visiting our page you are on a right track to getting something out of your longing.
Everyone advertises Athens for the Acropolis and Marathon but you will hardly find any info in the mainstream tourist guides about climbing. Now, what if we tell you that there are more than forty crags in and around the city! That you can choose any level of difficulty, you can combine your adventure with some cultural and historical input, you can choose between many different types of rock, and that you can climb in the superb climate of the Attika basin, all year round. The only obstacles may be some rainy days in winter or some extremely hot days in summer. However, if you can't imagine your stay in Athens without a day of climb, then in winter the wet days could be overcome by visiting one of the 4 major climbing and boulder indoor halls. On the hot days on the other hand, we can pick a sector which provides shade for the corresponding hours of the day. The final choice of the climbing area is of course also dependent on the level of difficulty which suits you. This is why we don't suggest a specific location yet, but only provide you with a general description, leaving the final decision for the day you'll get in touch.

DAILY ITINERARY

Our mountain guide or a certified climbing instructor will pick you up from your location in Athens or elsewhere. The distance to the selected climbing sector may vary, some crags being in the very center of Athens, the more remote ones - such as on Mt. Parnitha - a maximum distance of 40km from the city center. If you are a complete novice, you will learn the basic climbing and safety techniques in an introductory course. According to your progress you will make your first climbing steps either with the safer 'top rope' belay technique or if you are a natural born climber you may be even leading some routes on easy ground before you head back home. If you are a seasonal or an advanced climber, then you will be free to take your own initiatives. Our guide will accompany you in order to keep you safe, to provide you with details and little secrets of the routes and also with the climbing gear.
