Idyllic limestone climbing on the now famous Greek islands of Kalymnos and neighbouring Telemnos. The grade range is excellent with plenty of easy well bolted routes as well as mega-hard pumpy tufa fests in huge caves.
This absolutely fabulous guide has fantastic colour photo topos and plenty of climbing shots too. Numerous venues are described and lots of general info about the island given.
The 2019 revised edition of the Kalymnos guidebook is an all-new print edition of the guidebook with a free application for iOS and android devices. The majority of photos and photo-topos are new, and in addition to the practical information about each crag (shade, exposure, approach etc) extras, like GPS coordinates to each crag, have been added.
This new edition is even bigger than ever and now describes around 3,400 sport routes in 66 climbing areas with 13 further sectors described on the free app download that is included with the guide. Other guidebooks to Kalymnos come and go, and are usually cheaper, but this is the one, written by local climbers and with a big chunk of the profits going to equipping routes - a must!
In English.
