This guide is not limited to the simple description of the climbing fields of Athens, but also refers to their history. Through the action on each track, the history of Greek climbing unfolds, as it was formed on the rocks of Athens, and its most important figures are outlined. Our goal was to make the most objective presentation of the facts. For this reason we collected information from three different sources, so that we have the ability to cross-reference them and rule out any inaccuracies.

Varasova - climbing guide

Aris Theodoropoulos
This small book is the essence of the efforts of Aris Theodoropoulos and his rope companions for 13 years. The collection of data had started in 1983 and the publication of the guide went through many fluctuations and "complexes". The guide presents the complete details of the 86 routes that have been opened in Varasova, until the summer of '96. The layout of the routes is done in color photos. The intention of the creator of this small manual, in addition to helping climbers, is to promote and disseminate the "idea" of climbing, in the wider area. We hope that the Guide will give the impetus for general developments in Varasova.
