Summary

All grades to 8c+ available, but notably extremely high quality routes from 6b+ to 8a+ (and lots of them) in an idyllic Greek island setting.

Description

The world's current most popular sport climbing holiday destination.

Approach

You will walk to 60% of the crags and hire a scooter for the other 40%. Note new laws have been introduced in 2015 requiring that you must have a motorbike license in your home country if you wish to validly hire a scooter in Kalymnos. Some operators are already enforcing this (they have insurance problems if they don't). Others will still hire scooters on the basis of a driver's license, but probably not for long. If you do hire a scooter, take it easy: tonnes of people come off.

Where to stay

Any of the countless studios in Massouri.

Ethic

Full bolted sport climbing with a documented bolting standard.

History

Developed very recently, compared to most European climbing destinations; mostly within a span of 10 years.
