Western Cape, and it's climbing is spread over a vast area. From the wild Groot Rivier and Old Forest Crags near Plettenberg Bay, right the way across the province to the world-famous walls and boulders of Rocklands in the Cederberg. The journey between the two spans some 600 kilometres and takes about eight hours by road. Between these two areas lies a wealth of the most awesome climbing one could wish to find. In the Cape Peninsula alone, we are spoilt by having five-star cragging a mere stone’s throw away from the bustling heart of the Mother City. An hour’s drive from Cape Town will take you to more scenic crags like the beautiful granite domes of Paarl, the lonely and atmospheric Hellfire Crags dwarfed by the huge Du Toit’s Peak massif, and the quartzitic crags perched on a ridge above the seaside village of Kleinmond. Two hours from Cape Town is the town of Montagu. Climbing was discovered here a few decades ago and since then this little Breede River Valley town has grown to become the undisputed epicentre of sport climbing in the Western Cape, and one of the most popular destinations in the country. Montagu alone could keep most climbers busy for half a lifetime. A few hours further up the road, you will discover SA’s only limestone crag at Oudtshoorn – a beautiful, steep, scooped amphitheatre dripping with tufas. Here you will find some of the country’s hardest routes. If this isn’t enough, the Cederberg Mountains are located a mere two to three hours’ drive up the west coast from Cape Town. To many, the Cederberg needs no introduction, but for the few who have never experienced the magic of this unique mountain kingdom, suffice to say that the Cederberg is one of those special places that takes a hold of your soul and never lets go. Besides some of the best trad climbing on the planet on remote red sandstone walls situated high in the range, the Cederberg is also considered to be one of the top bouldering destinations in the world. You will also find an array of world-class sport climbing crags in this area. There is no question that the Western Cape is a climber’s paradise that can be rivaled by few places on Earth, so pack your sack and head out to sample some of the best climbing to be had.

Åland (Ahvenanmaa in Finnish) islands are a gorgeous destination on the Baltic Sea in between of Finland and Sweden. Åland provide world-class bouldering, a little of rope climbing, and tons of activities for the rest days. Crags provide spectacular views over the ocean and the rough island nature. The Åland islands have three large boulder areas which could be called the classics: Djupviksgrottorna, Fågelberget, and Kasviken. Djupviksgrottorna, or Grottan in short, has big roofs, plenty of jugs and style in general is very similar to indoor routes. The rock is red granite which gets a beautiful glowing colour during sunset. The place provides fun and challenging routes for everyone from first timers to very experienced climbers. Fågelberget is a seaside cliff with a stunning view. It takes about an hour to hike there, but it's definitely worth it. In general, the routes are more spread out than in other two main areas. The rock quality is smooth. There are not that many routes for beginners, but the area has great quality routes from 5+/6A onwards up to 8B+. Kasviken is a forestry area providing a large concentration of hard routes. It has the shortest access and during summer it usually stays cooler than other two crags. These three, which are covered as Premium topos, will keep you busy for a long time, but there's also several medium-sized and smaller crags which can be found from as community topos. The season in Åland is often a bit longer compared to the mainland of Finland as it tends to stay warmer and drier. The best and driest period is spring (March-May) but you can often climb all the way until October if you don't mind the warmer temperatures during summer and the bigger chance for rain in the autumn. You can travel to Åland islands either by boat or plane. It is quite cheap to bring your own car by boat and it's recommended as it will make your life a lot easier because the public transportation is not very good in the island. You can take a direct ferry to Åland’s capital Mariehamn either from Helsinki, Turku, or Stockholm. There are several companies and campgrounds providing rental cabins and places for a tent. The shops and restaurants are easy to visit by car, but otherwise the distances are quite long. Please be aware of ticks while in Åland. The season starts around April May and lasts till the first night frosts. A large share of ticks carry diseases in the Åland, but daily tick checks should keep you safe. While at rocks, remember following: · Don’t block road while parking · Don’t walk too close to houses or fields · Clean trashes and tick marks
Albarracín, also known as the "Spanish Fontainebleau", is a sandstone bouldering paradise. Situated close to Teruel, in the middle of Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia, it is easily reachable from many airports. The climbing is on high quality red sandstone and offers a great amount of indoor style roofs and overhangs. Besides these Albarracín offers different styles ranging from slabs to some of the worlds hardest top outs! One could though say that a typical Albarracín problem starts with a pockety roof and ends with a mantel on slopers. Due to its unique location in 1200 meters above sea level, Albarracín has almost bulletproof weather. It offers a very dry and coldish climate which suits bouldering perfectly. In addition to climbing, the surroundings and the village itself is a reason why many people travel here. Albarracín is also extremely well suitable for families. Some areas maybe less because of the hike but many areas are close to good paths. Bouldering close to one of the most beautiful villages in the world on great sandstone can't be that terrible of a travel choice? As in all the climbing areas, behaving correctly is crucial. No littering, no climbing on wet rock, brush away all the tick marks and stay on the obvious paths. In addition, it is forbidden to climb during the night in Albarracín, so no headlamp sessions allowed.

The rock itself is conglomerate often filled with pockets, and the area is surrounded by beautiful National Park of Montsant. The best climbing seasons are spring and autumn, but when choosing the shady routes it's possible to climb even in the summer! Margalef is also great for families thanks to versatile routes, generally short approaches and safe belaying areas.

Gran Canaria might be mostly known as a winter holiday destination for beach lovers, but besides this the island has a lot to offer for climbers. There's hundreds of of sport climbing routes, bouldering and trad which will easily fill your days there! The highest point of the island lies at 1948m and the mountain is very high in relation to its perimeter. This results in two very different areas in terms of weather: the humid and windy North and the dry and calm South. The climbing areas can be found in the North, South and middle of the island and due to the relatively small size of the island it's possible to visit many different crags during one trip. Nevertheless, it's good to check the crags you want to visit prior booking your accommodation in order to optimise the driving time. Gran Canaria suits climbers in all levels and the style varies from vertical basalt walls with long fingery routes to overhangs with big pockets and juggy ledges. When it comes to the season, during summer it might get too warm for climbing but the island has almost bullet proof weather in winter. Rain is rare and the temperatures stay pleasant at around 10-18 degrees. Gran Canaria is also a great place for families. Especially areas like Sorrueada and Tamadaba are fantastic for the whole family. There's also bouldering in the island, and especially Mogan offers plenty of problems in different grades and styles. You'll find the community topos of Mogan by typing the name in the search bar! When having a rest from climbing there's plenty of other activities and sightseeing to explore. To name a few, the island offers great opportunities for mountain biking, surfing and hiking. From the main city, Las Palmas, you can find some great restaurants and shopping malls, as well as climbing shops. If you're into long sandy beaches, then the South is the best place to head to. These topos are made by local climbers including Roque Lorenzo, Xerach Augusto, Adrian Marrero, Iris Pasamón, Norberto Cabrera and Christian Fernández del Valle. By using these topos you support the local climbing development and (re-)bolting in Gran Canaria.

Looking for easily reachable world class climbing area that has still remained undiscovered? Or maybe you're interested in versatile routes on limestone and marble combined with possibility for city sightseeing and cultural activities? Look no further. Athens area offers more than 1000 single pitch bolted lines in more than 40 crags and new routes are constantly popping up. In addition there are 4 multi pitch walls with trad lines, plenty of bouldering and a lot of potential for deep water solo. Limestone in Athens comes in a surprising variety of shapes and colors and can create climbing wonders ranging from sheer desperate slabs to highly featured, tufa infested walls. Tufa climbing has a strong presence in the area. In fact, the city’s best sport climbing crags can certainly rival those of Kalymnos’ in tufa climbing goodness. Undisputed king among the tufa kingdoms of Athens is the lost world of Mavrosouvala, a totally otherworldly place in the middle of nowhere. The craziest thing about this majestic stalactite forest is that very few Athenians actually know about its existence. Tufas might be the hype of the era but the true uniqueness of Athens climbing certainly lies on its 2000+ year old man-made marble quarries where the ancient extraction scars are still visible. Apart from its antiquity, marble climbing is very unique in its climbing kinesiology, forming an exceptional mental and physical challenge. Despite its hardcore reputation, Athens has moved forward into being into a climbing destination for all tastes and skills. Many new crags boast a variety for easy routes for beginner climbers. These high quality topos are made by local climber Georgios Chaziris, who's the co-author of Athens Climbing Guidebook.
