This guidebook contains all the known boulders and rope climbs. It is in English and German alike.
We have done it! Saxon-Anhalts’ first bouldering gym – ‘Kletterthalia’ – has opened its doors at Number 3, Thaliapassage.

The Geoquest-Team has resumed its involvement in the Balcans this year. Once again an international team was at the starting line.
The project was an ascent of the 2486m Papingut Mountain in the south of Albania, as well as a quest to find new sport climbing possibilities.

Since quite a time we are working on the climbing guidebook of Hampi. We met so many kind and hospitable people there and really felt home. But now the paradise is endangered.

The vision of the "Kletterthalia" project becomes reality! The first steps are done to create a modern climbers meeting point in the center of the ancient town of Halle.
Finally we are proud to present: the bouldering guide of Albarracin!

In the last months the area San Vito lo Capo in the north-west of Sicily acquired a reputation to be one of the best European climbing destinations for the cooler season. Many routes can be reached on foot from the camping and Monte Monaco even offers some multi-pitch climbs up to a length of 400 m.
