Evolving limestone crag at the eastern coast of the Peloponnes. Some call it the "new" Kalymnos and it definitely has the potential. Currently there are over 1000 routes and there are more every day.


Leonidio offers everything, from crimpy routes, to overhanging tufa climbing in all grade ranges, single pitch and multi-pitch. Due to the southward orientation of most sectors it is an excellent winter climbing destination. Relax in the small village or enjoy the sea on your rest days.
