Kalymnos, a Greek Treasure Island
Photos by Elodie Saracco – I went to Kalymnos five years ago for the first time and keep going back. This place amazes me by its fantastic panorama, its tasty food, and the many beautiful routes, whatever the grades youre looking for! The potential is enormous and new lines are steadily bolted. You wont be idle! Rock climbing there is different: you experience 3D climbing on stalactites and tufas, a stunning sea-view all around. Kalymnos is definitely a climbers paradise. Its one of the places you never forget, a powerful magnet that brings you back, again and again, thanks to a climbing community that makes you feel that youre part of something and the hospitality of the locals that helps you feel at home.
