Rock Climbing & Abseiling Info.

All you would like to know about the activity.

Any rock face, always, offers an anaglyph on its surface. The climber with a combination of right movement, physical strength and mental ability, uses this anaglyph in order to beat gravity and move upwards to the top, thus climbing the face. So, as a conclusion, the greater the anaglyph, the easier the climb, whereas the lesser the anaglyph, the harder the climb. Based on this general and vital rule, we have carefully selected and created rock climbing areas on rock faces ideal for the beginner’s full enjoyment and needs, with climbing routes of various grades.
The game on vertical, rocky terrain can be very enjoyable and thrilling, as one realizes that can do much more than they can imagine, by making the best possible use of the above combination and self control. This is being done under our guides’ / instructors’ constant care and supervision, and with the use of the most appropriate safety equipment. The main purpose / target of this activity is to get as much enjoyment and fulfillment as possible out of your first… or second vertical steps!
Well, about abseiling, we assume that you all have had some previous experience, especially in your youth’s time, so, we make sure that this time the experience will be within new dimensions!..


Process of the activity.

While at the rock, our guides have prepared the ropes and the rest of the equipment for you and introduce you to the technical and mental “secrets” of rock climbing, so that things become as much enjoyable as possible. Just after the introductory briefing, you come in a preliminary contact with the rock by trying moves, feet and body placement and many more. You will be pretty soon surprised with what you can do after applying what you have just learned about rock climbing! Then, the real game starts!

All climbs for the beginners are done by using of course the “top rope” securing / belaying method. This means that the climber is constantly being secured / belayed by a rope, one end tied up on their harness, the other end going through a high anchor on the rock face and down to the belayer guide / instructor.  After all, in everything we do, safety is our first priority.

For the experienced climbers: In the area of Mt. Kissavos and Mt.Olympus, apart from the beginners’ – “top rope” only – rock climbing areas, there is a great number of rock climbing routs in about 8 different climbing areas / sites, mainly on relative types of limestone. These climbing areas cover a great range of routes (more than a total of 200), grades, route lengths, types of climbing (sport climbing, hard rock, traditional / classic rock e.t.c) and elevation of the site. A great choice indeed! We will be glad to help and give all the support and information you need in order to enjoy your climbing. If you wish, we can provide rock climbing guides to lead well selected classics for you, not only in the described in this site climbing areas, but in the very well known conglomerate towers of Meteora as well.
