Description

Maronia is a boulder area in the north-east of Greece, close to the border with Turkey. The first boulders here were opened by local climbers. In spring 2005 we visited the area with our Greek friends Stelios and Marina and explored a part of the area. The boulders are spread at some big hills. There is a big potential for first ascents but the granite is covered with lichen and not everywhere of good quality. Opening new problems requires extensive cleaning. The boulder are lying in a wonderful quit landscape close to the sea. At the end of the gravel-road at Marmaritsa you can walk down to small beaches where you find also possibilities to camp. The boulders are on an archaeological site, so it's officially forbidden to camp there. Also digging for old remains can be very expensive. -Karsten Oelze

There is a lot of potential in this area.
