Description

Located among the Dodecanese Islands, off of the western coast of Turkey, in the Aegean Sea, Kalymnos is home to some of the best rock climbing in the Greek islands!

Over the course of our week together, we will explore as much of this mountainous island as we can, making numerous incredible ascents up excellent limestone walls. We will have 5 days of climbing during the week.

There are a variety of options for different climbing all over the island, ranging from beginner climbs to much more challenging ascents. Sport climbing is especially popular here as the island boasts a multitude of excellent routes.

Each day, we will head out to a different point on the island and ascend a steep wall or unique rock formation. Regardless of where we head, we’ll be able to enjoy incredible ocean views from the top.

When we’re not out on the rocks, there will also be plenty of time to check out the beaches and swim in the turquoise-blue water. The island is also known for its excellent wine and seafood, which we will have the chance to sample at the end of each day

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 7-day rock climbing trip on the beautiful Greek Island of Kalymnos!

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

On our meeting day the forecast was for a foggy day. Renato was a professional and decided not to go full on off pist, not only that he was very creative and found a way to help us practice some great techniques, while still finding some nice fresh snow and a lot of fun. Exactly what I expected when I was looking for a mountain guide, some to enjoy with, that on the same time will be responsible and reasonable. He is super experienced- instructing the local mountain guides on their training.

Our Guide was cold and distant and not sensitive to our needs. We are older women who wanted to go slow. She tried to convince us not to do the Via Ferrata because she thought we couldn’t handle it. Not true. I went through it and absolutely loved it. I took my time, and she seemed very rushed. The trip I had scheduled was canceled because of a problem with the route being closed. We had to do a different via Ferrara. That was OK. I wanted to take my time. Enjoy the scenery and she was hurry. Hurry hurry us. When we got to The Via Ferrata, she said there was no way we could handle it and that we shouldn’t go. I thoroughly enjoyed my climb, but my friend felt so pressured and uncomfortable by our guide not to go that she turned back. Unfortunate but I had a fabulous climb. (The tour was guided by certified mountain guide Benny)

I had an amazing climbing experience through Renato & guides! My guide, Robert, was great. He was very helpful beforehand making sure I had all the information I needed before we met. He also chose a perfect route that was suitable at my level climbing multipitch for the first time. The whole trip I felt safe and in great hands with Robert. He was even very patient with me when I could not tie a girth hitch after trying over and over. When I return to the Dolomites next I will definitely be scheduling directly through you guys again. If I hear of anyone else traveling to the Dolomites that wants to climb I would also highly recommend them to use your guide service and to ask specifically for Robert!

Robert was a fantastic guide! We had no via ferrata experience and we were able to complete an intermediate one with his help, would highly recommend.
