Rock climbing in Crimea

Crimea. Map shows climbing sites Nikita, Red Stone Simeiz, Uarch-Kaya, Parus, Sarych... Sudak Bakhchisaray

Southern Coast of Crimea is a real climbing paradise. There are many fully equipped climbing sites with grades from 5a to 8c+ (or 5.9 to 5.14 according to American climbing grades). Most interesting climbing sites are situated near Yalta. The nearest to Yalta is Nikita (only 5 km North-East along the road Yalta - Alushta). Next is Red Stone, situated in village of Krasnokamenka. From Yalta to the west there are sites Simeiz (two crags situated just near coast), next is Uarch-Kaya, then Parus, Sarych... A few crags with equipped routes one can find in Sudak and many routes in 5 different sectors one can find in Bakhchisarai. When I say fully equipped routes it means you need only a set of quick draws. Routes equipped with bolts or with eye locks. Below pictures of most popular sites for sport climbing in Crimea. Here: mulpti-pitch climbing in Crimea.
