Great Development at Kalymnos


Wednesday, 5 September

Many say that Kalymnos is the best climbing destination in the world. The good news is that it is getting better year-by-year as several new amazing sectors are beeing developed out of which some are more or less in the shade the full day. At the neighburing island, Telendos, a much bigger cave compared to Grande Grotta has been found where you actually can do a 3-pitch very steep 7a+! It has also been said that there is less tourists in 2012 due to the economical crises and that goes for climbers as well.
