climbing on the island Karpathos
This 56-page booklet presents 242 sport climbing routes of the Dodecanese island in the eastern Aegean Sea. For the first time, this topo guide has made the climbing world of this beautiful island accessible by book.
The 24 sectors / climbing gardens are located all over the island. Detailed maps with the accesses to the area, GPS data of the parking lots, good color photo topos as well as concise descriptions of the individual sectors make orientation easy. In addition, the difficulty levels are graded in different colors so that you can more quickly perceive what to expect. The color coding of the grades: up to 5c green, 6a to 6c+ red, 7a to 7c+ black and from 8a purple. Of course, the usual pictograms are still used for a quicker overview (child-friendliness, orientation of the sector, wall height, number of exes needed, approach time).
It may not have the quite big potential like other Greek climbing spots, but there is enough of good climbing stuff for a vacation on this island!
