Summary

Easy access. Hundreds of routes. Limestone. 300 days of sun and shaded areas all day.

Description

Geyikbayiri offers a full range of routes ranging from the easy (5a) to the difficult (8c) in one of the most pristine and scenic areas of Turkey.

Access issues

Access is easy, by car or minibus, via a single paved road and there is no walking for more than 10 minutes.

Approach

All approaches are free access as it is all part of a national park with no rigid rules and no supervision.

Where to stay

Stay at Climber's Garden for camping and at The Land for individual bungalows. Both offer restaurant service as well as DIY.

Ethic

There are no restrictions aside from respecting the environment as the local government has been very tolerant and we don't want that to change. All bolting is stainless steel and not more than 10 years old. Between 20 to 30 new routes are opened every year and visitors are welcome to contribute to that with local advice.

History

This area was discovered in 1995 by one of Turkey's top climbers. It has since grown very fast and is wiely considered to be on eof the best areas in the world for all levels and ages.
