There are some corners of Greece where the locals used to say, “When God was distributing the gifts to the world, some spots like ours must have been cursed because instead of fertile earth he delivered to us only rocks”. Today in the era of sport climbing, they’ve changed their mind and instead of a curse they see the rocks as a blessing! Crags became lively, and climbers come and enjoy!

Believe it or not Greece is primarily a mountainous country with more than 800 larger or smaller mountains, 53 of them with altitude exceeding the 2000m zone.
