New rock climbs at Meteora in Greece

di

At Meteora in Greece the German climbers Frank Wehner, Tino Tanneberger, Manuel Hasterok, Felix Friedrich, Tom Ehrig and Felix Bähr have established two big multi-pitch climbs, Heureka (160m, 8+) and Marvelous Marbles (165m, 9+).

Meteora is one of the famous, oldest and most idyllic places for rock climbing in Greece, "discovered" as it were by none other than Dietrich Hasse in 1975 together with climbing partner from Saxony.

Following in their footsteps, this spring a strong group of German climbers from precisely the same area comprised of Frank Wehner, Tino Tanneberger, Manuel Hasterok, Felix Friedrich, Tom Ehrig and Felix Bähr tavelle to the conglomerate towers above the village of Kastraki to establish two new routes.

Both are located on the Pixari Tower, are protected with bolts and were established ground-up over 6 days, after a prior attempt by Tino Tannenberger on a previous trip. It is highly likely that Heureka (160m, 8+) and Marvelous Marbles (165m, 9+) are currently the most difficult multi-pitch rock climbs in the area.
