But Tim, how can I ever find these amazing problems without a guide book?

If you had a beard you would not ask this silly question.

Like I tell everyone, if you want a tour of the area let us know, and we will make it happen.

There is a guide book. Im just not going to let you see it.

Dustyn, I'll let you in on a little secret about the Athens Bouldering Guidebook...

Its on the back shoulder of a young girl. She was tattooed with the the details... Kind of like in Water World.

I'm a beginner climber (been climbing just this quarter, and never outside yet) and I would love to do a weekend tour to be introduced to the beginner outdoor places in Athens to climb (and get some tips) on climbing outside.
