The Petzl RocTrip 2014 took place in eastern Europe. This year the RocTrip was set up as a journey to several different climbing areas in Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Romania and Turkey. I was fortunate to be one of two prize winners in Outside Magazine Sweden’s photo competition, which meant I got to join the RocTrip at the last stage in Turkey. This was the first time I met the other prize winner, Ola Lindberg, and we had a great time together, climbing, taking (and discussing) photos and basically having a great week together. We also met a bunch of other nice folks, some new faces and some old.
The first few days were spent in Geyik Bayiri, a place I visited earlier this year. The climbing is fun, but many, or most actually, sectors are in the sun, making it a little too hot for my taste this time of year. Mid week we were transferred to Olympos and Kadir’s Tree Houses. Wow! This place was very nice. A nice athmosphere and lots of good climbing (and shaded too!). Plus there’s a beach. I like it! This trip I was focusing on just having a great time with no special agenda, which felt just right. Of course I had my camera equipment ready and managed to get a few nice shots. I’d call them snap shots really. Below are a few of them.
Thanks again to everyone who voted for my photo in the competition! And thanks for voting for Ola’s as well, otherwise I wouldn’t have had such a great week.
