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+.
