And when it comes to the beauty of the country’s islands, it effortlessly exceeds those previously mentioned expectations. And one of the most beautiful islands in the nation’s rich collection is the focus of this trip: Kalymnos.

Rock climbing on the island of Kalymnos is unforgettable. It is thrilling, refreshing, and exhilarating. And on this amazing excursion, I would like to guide you along one of the many choices of multi-pitch routes that can be found throughout the island.

Rock Climbing Instructor

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!

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!

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.
