A good winter crag as it receives the afternoon sun.
1. The Ridge HD
On the left side of the rock formation. There isn’t a strict line to follow. Just pick an easy line to reach the top of the ridge.
2. Manzara S 4b
35 meters. Follow a natural line of weakness in the middle of the first block of viran Rocks.

3. Maymun (Monkey) S 4b
35 meters. There is a stuck cam around he middle of the route. If you see this you are on the right line.
4. Kertenkele Duvari (Lizard Wall) 6b+
25 meters. This route follows a line on the middle of the second block from the left. Starts from the tree. Curretly, the only route on this block.

10. Okan Abi 6a+
11. Juno 6b+

20 m. 9 bolts + anchor. A technical climb which leads to an overhanging crux. (You can avoid it by going left.)

9. Gıcırtı (The Creak) HVS 5a
40m. The route starts approximately 20m left of Hellimli up a rightward diagonal crack, which teeters out at a Jug. The next few meters is a wall with shallow pockets and small, sharp handholds jutting out of the face. After sorting out the gear in the crack (nuts and a cam), climb the wall (delicate climbing) to reach another rightward slanting crack. Give a big sigh of relief and fill the crack with great protection. Follow this crack to its end. Before reaching a small cave, the crack becomes perpendicular to the ground and goes into overhanging territory. This bit is intimidating, but it has excellent protection and handholds. So power your way up to the cave and get a good rest. At the cave, the choice of direction is to go left and join a corner which is followed to the top. This is probably at the high-end spectrum of HVS, but it’s delicious.

10. Hellimli (Bread made with Hellim) VS 4c
25m. A short climb that’s packed with quality climbing. Climb up the right hand corner below the pocketed section up to the middle of a short leftward diagonal crack below the pocketed wall. Climb the rest of the crack to the left, and continue up the overhanging pocketed wall on jugs until the jugs vanish. Escape left into a bold groove, and climb it to a short spike. Finish up the obvious crack and over a delightful but precarious overhang.

11. Orta (Mid [Medium Sugar Turkish Coffee]) S 4a
Right of Hellimli is a grey triangle with a rising diagonal crack on either side. There is a distinct drop in the ridge with a pinacle on the left. Orta takes the left diagonal, continues up a slab where one or two blocks await trundling! and finishes on the crest. Descent is by abseil from a tree on the right(in ascent).
12. Sade (Plain [ No Sugar Turkish Coffee]) S 4a
The right hand diagonal right of Orta. Beautiful well balanced climbing with great gear leads to the slab where one or two blocks await trundling. Continue up and left to the pinnacle and climb this to belay from its top (cams in break 1/2 way up pinnacle). Descent is by abseil from the same tree as Orta.
