Description

Come and enjoy this 6-day rock climbing course and discover Kalymnos, one of the most beautiful climbing site in the world.

The beginning of the week will be used to analyse your current climbing practice, after which I will be able to advise you and help you to improve, such as optimising your grip, improving your climbing rhythm, speed and reading and memorising routes. If you have a specific goal, you can work on it in a relaxed and motivating environment. In short, this course is for climbers who want to push themselves and reach a new level.

This week is also an opportunity to explore the beautiful routes on the island of Kalymnos, paradise of climbing, and discover all its facets.

Program

The program is based on 8 days, it includes your two days of arrival and departure.

D1: Arrival.
Arrive on Kalymnos, in Pothia harbour, then you can make your way to your chosen accommodation. I highly recommend you stay in Masouri or Myrties as these areas are closest to the crags and most convenient for your stay (shops, restaurants, etc).

D2 to D3: Climbing.
We go to the cliffs for 4 to 5 hours of climbing. The rest of the day you can relax at the beach, discover the surrounding villages, enjoy your evening with Greek cuisine, etc.

D4: Boat trip.
We board for a sea trip. In the vicinity of the island's fish farms, dolphins are regularly present: jump into the water to try to observe these playful mammals. Then try deep water soloing, climb over the sea... unforgettable! Unless you are Alex Honnold you will probably end up in the sea, so be prepared to swim!

D5 to D7: Climbing.
Get back into the rhythm with 4 to 5 hours of climbing. Progress at your own pace on the island's many routes! One day will be dedicated to climbing on Telendos, the iconic island in front of Kalymnos.

D8: Departure.
It’s the end of your trip, feel free to leave whenever you want. The transfer is to be organised by your own means.
