The Athens Climbing Guidebook by A Chaziris, G Chaziris and A Markou is written in excellent English and the authors enthusiasm for the area shines throughout.

There are 33 crags in the guide, encompassing a range of grades and styles so plenty to go at whatever your grade. As well as steep, tufa routes on stunning looking orange limestone, there's immaculate looking grey limestone walls, pocketed walls and slabs, and interestingly various marble crags which offer both sports routes and some amazing looking trad crack lines. For a lot of the crags spring/autumn looks like the best season but there are also some definite summer and winter venues.

The guide is divided into nine areas with detailed sketch maps and the crags themselves have a detailed introduction which describes the general feel of the area and climbs, as well as a brief history and good assess notes. Several of the crags are accessible by public transport with details included. Clear photo-topos help to locate the routes as well as giving a good indication of what to expect from the crag. The written route descriptions are great.
