Crag features
IF YOU ARE ADDING ROUTES THAT ARE NOT IN THE DATABASE - PLEASE ADD A DESCRIPTION AS TO WHERE THEY ARE AND WHAT THE CLIMBING INVOLVES. This area features every sector above the road, except for some parts of Kuillin. Please log Kuillin climbs in the lower sector.

Geyikbayiri takes its name from the nearby village. The main crag faces predominantly south and is almost a mile long with over 500 routes. A new guidebook was published in summer 2009.

The climbs generally follow good lines up impressive features. Most of the routes are single pitch, generally 25 - 30 metres with some up to 60m. There are also a few two pitch routes.

There is a second, smaller, south-facing crag towering the JoSiTo campsite. It has about 75 routes, the first of which is 'Hart Aber Herzlich' in the Logbooks route list for the crag.

There is a north facing crag to the west of the JoSiTo campsite, a short 10 minutes walk. Trebbena has some amazing steep lines on overhanging Tufa, often with intermediate lower off points allowing progressively longer and harder routes. Aquaduct at 8C is the hardest route in Turkey ands is the work of Tobias Haug, the "To" of Josito.

Further down the valley is another crag - Alabalik (which means Trout) - about the river, again 10 minutes walk from Josito. Here there are some easier lines but the best are hard, including a couple of projects....

The most prolific new router was Ozturk Kayikci when he ran the campsite below the main crag. In recent years, this role has been taken on by Tobias who is responsible for about a thrid of all the routes. M. Piola is also a regular visitor and new router.

The larger campsite, JoSiTo, run by German ex-pats is in the lovely valley below the second crag. It has several bungalows, shower facilities and a club house / bar in which delicious good value meals are served.

Summer (July / August) is really too hot to climb unless you really love the heat and sun. May/Jun and September/October can require some moving around to climb in the shade, and there is always the north face of Trebbena. December and January can be cold at night but when the sun shines, as it usually does, the conditions are perfect. Outside of the winter months there is very little rain.

Access notes
No known access issues - see http://www.josito.de for the most up to date information.

All the climbing at Geyikbayiri is within walking distance of either JoSiTo or Ozturk's campsite.

The general consensus of opinion (by climbers much better than me) seems to be that the routes up to 6c are under graded. Our experience agreed with this apart from Ottoman, Mevlana and Barbarossa, which seemed about right. Obviously we didnít climb all sectors but beware of being sandbagged! The latest guide book has many changes from the grades given in the UKC database. Excellent climbing area though.
