Kalymnos is a jewel of rock glistening in the Aegean, and arguably one of Europe’s most popular climbing destinations. Each year over 7000 climbers visit to take advantage of its unique qualities as a climbing destination – a bountiful supply of high quality rock within the idyllic setting of a Greek island beach holiday.
Since the first routes were put up on the island over 15 years ago, the growth of climbing and new route development has been remarkable. In 2008 there were around 800 routes and in 2010 this had increased to 1700. Today our record of known routes exceeds 3000.
