Sarikaya near Manisa, north of Izmir (Turkish Aegean coast), lay dormant for a long time until it was discovered. 2 Turkish climbers took on the rocks after passing them for years. In December 2011, the development of the climbing area, which is also ideally suited for the Turkish summer, began.
The area awaits with 120 sport climbing routes and some trad routes at 650 m above sea level. The wall height varies between 10 and 47 meters. There are some 7c's on 47 meters! Otherwise the difficulties are between 5 and 8b+ and from about 14.00 you climb in the shade.
The limestone conglomerate rock is good to climb and is almost virgin.
The climbing guide is modern and depicts the routes on good color photos. Information on how to get there (whether by bus or car), on accommodations, on equipment, on the slope of the rock, on child-friendliness and much more is given as pictograms or as text. And all this in Turkish or English.
A successful book for a small, fine area!
