At the end of last year I went to Turkey for some awesome tufa climbing. My Instagram followers have already seen some pictures of this trip, but here is the full story, including even more pictures.

The weather in GeyikBayiri was perfect. Clear blue skies and not a single drop of rain!

Together with my friend Jérôme I shared a bungalow on the camping Climbers Garden. Daniel, Jurgen and Sven, friends with whom I climbed here 2 years ago, stayed at campsite Josito. Click here to check the post from back then.

During this trip we went many times to Çitdibi where we enjoyed long tufas in perfect conditions. The first day was still a little bit chilly, but luckily this also resulted in very good friction on the rock.

Besides all the climbing I have also made a beautiful hike together with Jeroen Kuipers.

Jeroen shared interesting facts about the history of Trebenna and showed us some remains of this former village. Very impressive to see these artifacts exposed to the elements instead of preserved in a museum.

Besides visiting Trebenna I had another rest day in Antalya.

From the Netherlands I again congratulate you guys very much and I hope that you will climb many hard routes together in the future!

On my last day I climbed with Duygu in Alabalik. Together we worked in the route Neptulania. Luckily I was able to send this route in my third attempt. This was a really nice end to my climbing holiday.

All the other routes I topped during my stay can be found in my tick list. I didn’t climb super hard routes, nevertheless I ended up with really nice memories and had good times with my climbing buddies!
