Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Greece:

Hello everyone!  For two days, our team climbed in one of the most beautiful places in Greece called Meteora. There are huge pillars about 300 meters high, some of them are occupied by active monasteries. This whole natural and man-made complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The rock is a conglomerate, and quite fragile, it is necessary to climb carefully, since almost any stone can, if desired, simply be removed from the wall. An additional difficulty is that the belay on bolts is quite rare (5-6 meters between the points) and you can additionally belay only in rare crevices or by throwing loops on all the same protruding unreliable stones.

We made 3 climbs, and I managed to make one parachute jump from one of the walls.
