Climbing in Thailand

I remember when I was in grad school, a rookie climber who hadn’t yet left the gym and was barely beginning to understand climbing lingo.  I had just learned what a tick list was when I stumbled across a photo of some girl looking badass while stemming between stalactites on Humanality, a classic five pitch 5.10c/d route in Tonsai.  Not only did the route look awesome, but the photographer had managed to frame the shot so that you could not only see the climber and the stalactite, but also the bar at the base of the route. As I clicked into the route description I read something about lowering off directly onto the deck of the Freedom Bar, and voila – all a sudden I had a route on my tick list.

Climbing in Geyikbayiri, Turkey

Written by  in 

We asked Siri to tell us about starting a climbing camp in Turkey and what she loves about the area.

Q: When did it all start?

The first contact with Turkey came in 2002. We were invited to a wedding from a good friend from Munich of Turkish heritage. We decided to stay some more days in Turkey and took our climbing gear with us and as a precaution the Hilti too. Tobi found the Turkish webpage of the region developer Öztürk. After 2 recovery days, we packed up and moved from the coast into the mountains, and saw then for the first time the marvellous rock faces of Geyikbayiri. After some days of climbing and bolting the idea and wish to eventually stay here grew pretty quickly within us.
In the summer of 2003 founded the Jo.Si.To. GmbH. After placing ourselves in this foreign culture and dealing and struggling with diverse bureaucratic situations, we are happy to life and climb here in this magic climbing area Geyikbayiri.
