Greek Archaeological Council bans climbing contest at Meteora
More than 1,000 climbers, journalists and tourists will be disappointed this year after
 the Central Archaeological Council of Greece banned a climbing festival from
 taking place in the rock formations of Meteora in Central Greece

More than 1,000 visitors – including climbers, spectators and journalists – were expected to take part in the annual Petzl Roctrip contest between September 29 – October 3.

KAS officials told Kathimerini that organizers had failed to provide enough details about the contest's rock climbing routes and the festival's parallel cultural events.

Officials denied speculation that the decision was influenced by opposition to the gathering from the monastic community of Meteora.

Built into and on top of huge pinnacles of smooth rock, the monasteries of Meteora are one of the most extraordinary sights in mainland Greece.

The KAS decision came under criticism from the centrist To Potami party.

“We have to make use of our land in a way that is beneficial for future generations, without prejudice and red tape getting in the way, but of course, always respectful of the natural beauty and history of the place,” the party said in a statement.

Two members of the party were scheduled to climb the Meteora rocks in a symbolic gesture against the decision.
