Manikia | Exploring Greece’s New Climbing Mecca  // A Family Climbing Film

Manikia | Exploring Greece’s New Climbing Mecca // A Family Climbing Film

Only 1.5 hours from Athens, we found it insane that the rocks around Manikia - Greece's newest climbing mecca - sat silently undiscovered by climbers for so many years. With so much quality rock, grades ranging from 4-9a, single pitch and multi pitch, Manikia is a climbers paradise with new routes and sectors regularly being developed by a collective of climbers and bolters, and the Petzl Roc Trip visiting recently in 2022 in support of the Manikia Project. We've circled back in our van twice this year and with the kindness of the local people, the culture and the landscape combined with world class climbing, Manikia is a place we find harder and harder to leave each time... This short climbing film (the first of many we’ve got planned from our travels!) was a joy to document and a mission to produce but reliving the memories now, it was so worth it. I hope if you watch it with your family it’ll encourage you to plan a climbing trip to Manikia or even just to get out there and enjoy the outdoors with your kids, push the boundaries and reap the benefits. Maybe return to the adventurous life you love or step out of your comfort zone and try something new for yourself or with the sprogs 🧗‍♀️ Hope you enjoy 🩶 /// Subscribe and hit the bell 🔔 to never miss a film!
