Join us on a climbing camp to Kalymnos!
Kalymnos is paradise for climbing. With an infinite number of routes of all degrees, this trip suits anyone who wants to develop their climbing in a fantastic environment.
The days will be filled with workshops, climbing, course sessions, swimming in the sea and exciting experiences!
We also work towards your personal goals during the trip. Maybe you want to learn how to build an anchor or make your first multipitch.
To develop as a climber regardless of whether you are a beginner with a green card climbing outside for the first time or if you want to project your first 8a. We will focus on the mental part, climbing technique, fall training and how to best approach your project. Red card included for anyone who doesn't have it yet.
You have a green card, but you don't need to have previous experience climbing outdoors. Your climbing level doesn't matter, the trip is for anyone interested in developing their climbing!
If you have not taken a basic course, you will find all the dates here.
All instructors are mountain guides and climbing instructors with extensive experience in both climbing and training in climbing.
Registration takes place via the form on the right.
Program for the trip
Travel day. You travel by plane to Kos and from there you take the ferry to Kalymnos where we pick you up. Check-in at accommodation and free activities for the evening. You can arrive at any time during the day.
Welcome meeting & breakfast in the morning. Then we head off to a cliff where we climb together. We're looking at belaying techniques, rope climbing & climbing techniques. In the evening we have a lovely welcome dinner (included).
After breakfast we head to a rock we choose together as a group. Maybe a classic like Odessey or Ahri. Somewhere where there is a large selection of many different trails at different levels so it should suit the whole group. We continue to work on our climbing technique & tactics to onsight routes. After the climb, anyone who wants is free to take a bath in the sea!
We eat breakfast and go over what we learned during the days and what our goals are for the rest of the trip. Today, a visit to the Grande grotto might attract. The Panorama, Afternoon and Spartan Wall sectors are right next door for those who want even more to choose from. Those who can stand it stay and climb until the sun goes down.
Today we have a quieter day so we get important recovery for the rest of the week. Climbing many days in a row can be unusual at first and muscles and skin may need a break. We take care of ourselves a little extra today by starting the morning with a yoga session at Kalymnos Experience. We also spend the day learning rephanterng, rappelling and multipitch climbing for tomorrow's adventure. The evening ends with all participants receiving a massage from Dimitris at Kaylmons Climbers Massage.
Today a big adventure awaits - multipitch climbing to the top of the Grande Grotta where we then do an 80 meter free-hanging abseil straight down into the cave. It is an awesome experience and an exciting adventure. If you haven't climbed multipitch before, it's guaranteed to tickle your stomach when you hang a hundred meters up the wall. Anyone who wants to climb more during the day will of course do so after the descent into the cave.
After breakfast we decide on a new rock to climb. Maybe we go to the other side of the island to The Beach, Secret Garden or Sikati Cave. The day is devoted to your goals with the trip and more personal coaching. Maybe there is something in particular you want to focus on? In the evening we have a joint closing dinner (included)
Journey home. We will take you to the ferry in the morning that you will take to Kos to be able to fly home again.
