Climbing in Kalymnos (Greece)
... climbing the Island of Sponges
Small island of the Dodecanese, Kalymnos was once known as "the island of sponges". For several years it has been the destination of many climbers who want to combine climbing, sea and relaxation.

It is planned to carry out a period of 10 days including travel and seven days of activity. It will be possible to turn the different cliffs and beaches of the island. The climbing of Kalymnos offers us single pitches of all the difficulties to best meet your technical level.
