Sunclimbing welcomes you to
the rock climbing paradise of Geyikbayiri
The best place to go sport climbing in Turkey is undoubtedly Antalya and in particular the crags of Geyikbayiri. Geyikbayiri is the largest sport climbing area in Turkey with well over 1200 routes, situated only 25km from the busy tourist city of Antalya.
The quality and beauty of the rock in Geyikbayiri, plus Antalya’s climate, and the relative ease of transportation are the prime reasons that pull climbers to the area. You will climb on superb limestone rock, with features ranging from grey limestone walls with small crimps, overhanging walls with stalactites and tufas, to pocketed walls described as a “mini Ceuse”. The main crag is 1.5km long, which along with several other buttresses, provides hundreds of routes across all grades from 4 to 9a+.
Our Sunclimbing Base
Climbing school, guiding center, shop, equipment rental, and information center
We are the place where you can meet like-minded people, rent or buy material, book a course, get all the information you need for your climbing experience, or just hang out on our terrace with a good cup of coffee.
The Sunclimbing base is at the entrance to the Poseidon, Ottoman, Mevlana, Toki, and Barbarossa sectors. You can not miss it on the way up the path from the street.
From September 2023, Sunclimbing will be in charge of the newly founded Austrian Alpine Club (Österreichischer Alpenverein, ÖAV) section Geyikbayiri. Becoming a section member holds many advantages for you: Reduced course prices, insurance in case of climbing accidents, and much more. For more details please click here.
