Olympos

Olympos is not only home to one of the most important historical cities of ancient Lycia, but also an excellent array of sport climbing crags too. The small village of Olympos hosts around 200 routes. These are beautifully situated amongst the forest, surrounded by mountains, and are a mere 5 minute walk from a picturesque beach and the crystal clear waters of the southern Mediterranean. No particular style of climbing dominates the crags of Olympos, with each area requiring a different skill set to perform well. For example, Cennet (Turkish for heaven) is the most popular sector, set in an idyllic location amongst the trees and above the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. The climbing is thin and technical, think Styx sector at Buoux. In contrast, Horguc, the roadside crag in the centre of the village, is steep, burly and physical, and would not seem out of place in Kalymnos. As well as these two areas there are another five or so sectors each offering something different again. The walls on the shore between Yarasalı, Olympos and Adrasan offer fantastic DWS. The rock features tufas and pockets and ranges from 8 to 20 meters high above deep water.
