The climbing meeting finished officially while some of our friends continue their holidays climbing or travelling around when the weather is not the optimum. During the meeting, more than 120 climbers visited Leonidio from 13 different countries, such as Bulgaria, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Mexico, Czech Republic, Sweden, Russia, Columbia, Venezuela and U.S.A. From Greece, especially, climbers from Nafplio, Crete, Ioannina, Trikala, Patra, Athens, ….On the number of the existing routes 30 were added in 6 new sectors or in the existing ones. Information of the routes will be published soon.
It was nice to have a positive feedback, both from the climbers and the habitants of Leonidio, many of whom have after these days a new hobby . Many of the climbers would like to come back this year just to climb or continue bolting routes.
The climbing meeting will take place from 20.12.2013 - 12.01.2014. It is about a meeting of local Greek climbers and climbers from all over the world to get in touch and bolt new routes, climb what has been established, and experience the potential of Leonidio.
Accommodations will be located at the new camping site in Leonidio located directly at the beach. www.camping-semeli.gr
