Summary

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

Description

Geyikbayırı offers a full range of routes ranging from the easy (5a) to the difficult (9a) in one of the most pristine and scenic areas of Turkey.

The official guidebook by Öztürk Kayıkcı can be bought at the camps in Geyikbayırı.

Access issues

Access is easy, by car or minibus, via a single paved road. Depending on where you stay furthest access is about a 30 minute walk.

Approach

Geyikbayırı is just 40km from the airport in Antalya. If you are coming from abroad it is best to fly into Antalya and take a taxi to your accommodation or rent a car.

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

Where to stay

There is heaps of places to stay in Geyikbayırı. Most people will stay at Josito for the Social vibes and also the ease of finding climbing partners as well and they do a really good decent Pizza Night. There is also Flying Goat Hostel which is just opposite Sarkıt crag. This two camps/Hostel supports the local development and bolting so most people will stay here but regardless there is heaps of cheap options and if you are planning to stay long term you can always discuss the price of monthly rental with the owners/manager.

Another option of course is to stay in town near Konyalti and rent a car as it works out to be the same if you are renting a bungalow at the camps.

Here's a full list of the climbing camps in the valley:

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.
