Description

Head to Greece to the incredible Meteora for a week of exoticism and vertical potato fields. Climbing the Greek pudding is a journey within a journey, to the gates of the Orient.

In the heart of Thessaly, more than a hundred conglomerate towers, some topped by Orthodox monasteries, draw a unique massif. Their steep walls are a tangle of pebbles of all sizes that allow a climbing often very affordable, in many routes from 100 to more than 250 meters high and in a level mostly between 5c and 6b.

Climbing here rhymes with exotic flavors, playful climbing, equipment from another era and a warm Greek welcome. In short, you will have a quiet week, climbing pitches by feel, just for the pleasure!
