Kalymnos bolting event in 2013


6 December 2012

Part of the rapid success for Kalymnos was that the equippers did get free bolts during the first years. There are currently some 2 500 routes on the island and during the last years more than 200 new routes have been added yearly but they have been paid by the bolters themselves. Climbkalymnos reports that Sachsenheim will organize a bolt event between October 26th to November 9th were they will give out free bolts and arrange for discounted accommodation, food and scooters. (c) Nikolaos Smalios Climb Kalymnos, the topo producer, will during the same event provide new bolts for the ones that need to be rebolted.
