About the guide

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!

What people are saying about Simon


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.


It was all perfect! We have great climbing days in Kalymnos!


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.



Amazing experience, great guide! Wholeheartedly recommended.


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.
