Turkey, Geyikbayiri and sport climbing at the new Sector – Moon

The routes feature pockets, tufa, crimps, and jugs. The Moon is in the shade after 12 noon but there are sunny spots till 5pm to have lunch. The rock is solid and cleaned to perfection. The tranquil area is above a small river and looks northeast over forests and mountains. Thanks to Petzl, Climbers Garden, The Land, and the route equippers, route scrubbers, and trail builders Murat Gorken, James Cruikshank, Katharina Habermann, Wolfgang Schulz and Jeroen Kuiper.

DIRECTIONS – The location is a short 15 walk up the paved road from Climbers garden. At the junction to the big entrance sign saying –Welcome Geyikbayiri– stay on the right paved road and walk uphill for another 10 minutes. Here you must turn right after the squiggly road sign onto an obvious dirt road. Walk past goat pens and plastic shepherd huts (be friendly and respectful). Then you will come to an open field. Walk (5 minutes) and follow red markers to Moon. The orange paint is from the Shepherds and will get you lost.       IMG_6423.JPG
