This book covers the rock climbing, sports climbing and bouldering in Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. A general introduction is given to each country, with a lot of photographs, maps and background information, that make you want to go and climb in these countries.
Rather than detailing specific routes it concentrates on describing the different crags, number of routes, quality of the bolting, style of climbing, how to get there, where to stay, and which local guidebooks are available etc. Clear maps and directions are given on how to reach the individual crags. This guidebook is very useful if you are interested in visiting a country detailed in the book and are looking for good accurate and useful information or need help in deciding where to visit.
