Kalymnos – our climbing dream

Kalymnos offers next to amazing climbing in all grades also perfect holiday ambiance. The routes offer a huge variety of style and rock structures and are optimally secured. A cozy little island in the Aegean sea with wonderful bays, turquis waters, mild temperatures and delicious medeiterranean food – a dream come true!

In this wonderful ambiance we will spend a week with climbing, relaxing and having a lot of fun! This climbing trip is directed to climbers with more and less experience on natural rock. But also the climber with ambitions to increase their redpoint or onsight level will get their money´s worth.

Within the group we will pay attention to your individual wishes. We teach the basics that are necessary to climb independently but also support you while projecting your dream route.

The layout of the climbing trip completely depends on your wishes. You can take it easy, get a second breakfast to mentally prepare for your climbing or go swimming before heading to the crag.  Or we can climb all day long, start really early and get back to finish the day at the beach.

This beautiful island, of course, is perfect to bring along your non-climbing better half. We gladly will take of organizing your accomodation.

And in detail?

Arrival:

Arrangements for flights and local transport is to be organized by everyone themselves. You will get a contact list of the participants in advance, so that you can arrange carpools if you want.

Important:

We are no travel agency and therefore kindly ask you to get a travel insurance, as well as an insurance to cover potential seminar costs (i.e. Hanse Merkur). We refund our seminar costs according to our AGB’s.

Our week:

On the first day we start with a welcoming round and general information, whereupon we head out to the crag as fast as possible. We will climb for three days in different sectors, within which there will also be enough time for beach activities, recuperation and relaxation. We start our days around 9am and climb until around 4pm, depending on heat and orientation of the crag.

After three days of climbing we will have a restday, so that muscles, skin and finder can recover. You can design this day completely at your will and unwind, so that we can climb for anther two days afterwards.

Although we want to enable you to as much climbing and input as possible and as you like and plan our days accordingly, it´s still up to you in what way you participate in climbing and other activities (beach, ice coffee etc.). Who wants to design his day a bit different (sleep in, leave earlier for the beach…) can do this anytime! After all this is your holiday! 🙂

At the crag:

Certainly we will cover safety topics initially, so that there is a secure feeling within the group.

During the week you get individual input about your climbing style and technique. We will shape the input during the day completely according to your wishes. Like that we will individually focus more on security, mental aspects, strength or technique and together build up the content over the week.

All of our coaches have year long climbing experience and have additional areas of expertise. Due to that there will be different small Workshops during the week and/or individual input about a variety of topics (foot technique workshop, mental aspects of climbing, rope handling and belay techniques are at a premium here 😉 ) depending on the special area of expertise of the trainers, whereas the corporate climbing is in focus.

It is important for us, that you don´t have to worry about anything during the week and can find complete recuperation. We take care of the creation of the climbing days, search for suitable sectors, make restaurant reservations and have plenty of ideas on how to spend your rest day. Be it actively or spending it at one of the beautiful bays. You decide ow intense your day may be and what is right for you.

Equipment:

We organise the equipment for you in advance, so that not everyone has to bring rope and quickdraws. To do this this we ask who can contribute which material beforehand to get an overview and then we let you know if rope or draws jump into the suitcase.

Moped (and rental car):

On the island we need wheels to reach some of the crags. The most common, funniest and therefore our choice to get around are mopeds. On our first day we go to our trusted moped rental together to get the mopeds.You will share a moped within two people, ride sharing usually fall into place within the first day. For those who feel a bit uncomfortable with this arrangement there is the opportunity to hare a rental car as well. Please let us also know in advance if you would like a moped for yourself, without co-driver. We will try to make this possible.

Accomodation:

We take care of the reservation and payment of the accomodation in your name. Payment will take place in cash, on-site. Our apartments on kalymnos ar equipped with 2 or 3 beds and a kitchenette. We gladly also reserve a single appartment for you, considering an additional charge.

Food:

You can buy breakfast supplies and groceries for lunch in one of the numerous shops in Massourt. The supermarkets are open until 11pm and are situated directly next to our appartments. The group then usually goes to have dinner together. We make reservations for you for every night in one of our favourite restaurants, where you can enjoy best greek wine, salads and seafood. Gladly you can let us know of any restaurant preferences during the day. Of course it´s again left to your own choice if you would like to join the dinner at the restaurant.
