KALYMNOS 2020: Courses, Programs & Events



This is an outline of what I am offering on Kalymnos (plus a preview of a few non-Kalymnos extras) in the coming season. This is my general plan, however, I am always willing to adapt to climbers needs and other considerations to customise my courses, programs and events.


In my experience, the trend on Kalymnos is moving more and more in the direction of bookings and inquirers coming on a short-term basis. This means that flexibility and responsiveness (similar to on-sight climbing!) is key in supporting climbers looking to make improvements, address issues and have a rewarding sport climbing experience while on Kalymnos.


Please contact me (kalymnosprimalclimb@gmail.com) if you need further information or with any questions. I am happy to adjust the scope and content of the courses and programs as well as logistics to accommodate climbers when ever possible.
