Climbing: an excuse to travel? Once you hit the road you’ll never be able to stop!

This course is designed for climbers who already possess intermediate climbing skills, who can already lead climb and for established climbers leading grade 6b or more who are interested in improving and perfecting their climbing skills while wanting to link this with the joys and adventure of travel.

LOCATION:

The island of Kalymnos is situated in the Dodecanese archipelago in the south east of the Aegean sea, between Leros and the west of Turkey (Asia minor). Despite the effects of tourism, Kalymnos has managed to preserve its authentic and wild nature. With the diversity of climbing areas and Mediterranean climate, it has, over the past 10 years, become one of the climbing meccas of the times.  Kalymnos boasts hundreds of magnificent sport routes on sculpted sea cliffs renowned for its tufas and beaches. Easily accessible, the cliffs are more than 30m high, with routes for all levels ranging grade 3 sport climbing to grade 9!

CONTENT:

    

Throughout the trip we shall aim to visit as many different climbing sectors as possible and thus benefit from the diversity of routes to discover different climbing styles and thus techniques and to practice and enjoy “on-sight” climbing. We shall also look at various aspects of climbing, including:

  • The importance of climbing safety: basic rules (stopper knots, belay management, communication between climbing partners)
  • Climbing tactics: reading a route, rhythm, relaxing between moves, and other aspects of self-control that are crucial to succeeding in on-sighting and red- pointing.

All of these aspects of climbing will be set to the backdrop of the adventure of discovering the island and climbing in this magical setting.

We shall meet in Kalymnos the eve of the course, the exact meeting point will be sent to you via email before your departure.
