Description

Would you like to visit a beautiful place and discover a new passion? Then I invite you to a 5-day introductory rock climbing course in Leonidio, a Greek town situated in the Peloponnese region. Located near the sea, it is surrounded by incredible mountains and it is a great destination to practice rock climbing.

On this adventure, I will teach you everything that you need to know to get started with this great activity. You will learn about visualizing a route, making strategies and using climbing techniques such as top-rope climbing. Also, I will give you some advice about breathing and training as well as about mental aspects of this activity.

One of the main characteristics of this course is the personalized attention you will get from an experimented guide. The  itinerary will be arranged according to your expectations and I’ll make sure you have the best possible time. 

Although you don’t need to have prior rock climbing experience, keep in mind that it is important to have a good level of fitness.

If you think this program would suit you, then do not hesitate to send your request. I will be pleased to show you the ropes on this course in the beautiful town of Leonidio.

About the guide

After nearly 10 years of mountaineering in Chamonix, I decided to dedicate myself to rock climbing.

In 2005, after one year intensive training, he got the french national sport’s instructor certificate for rock climbing (BEES escalade).

I have been exploring the crags of France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and China. I finally decided to set up his climbing school in the island of Kalymnos (Greece). The beautiful landscapes, the endless sunshine and the vast climbing potential of the island convinced me to settle here from my first visit.

Since then, climbers from all over the world came to share his passion and to take avantage of his experience to improve their rock climbing skills. I have opened many new routes both in Kalymnos and Telendos from 4 to 9a. I climb 8a on-sight and red-point up to 8c. I did most of the routes of the island and always has new projects to red point!

With benevolence, confidence and gentleness, Simon Montmory provides high-quality advice to make a leap forward in the practice of climbing, whatever your starting level. He showed a lot of patience in teaching me the safety techniques for belaying in outside routes and encouraged me to progress in levels which seemed difficult to me. You will live an extraordinary experience in this magnificent place located between sky and sea that is Kalymnos.

We had Mattias for our first day who was amazing, such a cool guy, made the day fun and enjoyable and we learned a lot from him. On our second day we had Tania who was an excellent teacher, very patient and definitely recommend both of them.

We've had a great time climbing with Tania. Yoga in the evenings helped to calm our minds and focus on meditative strategies on the crag. All in all wonderful!

Absolutely awesome and motivating instructor. Knows the climbing areas of kalymnos like the back of his hand. He will see your weaknesses and hit you where it hurts...but in a good way.

We climbed with Joe and he was amazing! Very knowledgeable about climbing, kept us calm and was very encouraging for our first climb. We are thankful for the skills we learnt and next time we are in Kalymnos we will be seeking Joe's assistance again. Thank you very much!

Simon is a great coach, very flexible and truly a joy to spend climbing days with. I saw great improvements in my technique but also my overall philosophy of climbing. Being able to speak so many languages makes it so easy to go along with international friends.
