  • Conquer various multi-pitch routes both on Kalymnos and the neighbouring island of Telendos, all with stunning views and grades ranging from 5c (5.8/5.9) to 6c (5.11a) and beyond.  Learn about building anchors, rope management, safety systems, descending, and a whole lot more. Send multi-pitch routes for both beginners and advanced climbers, with iconic lines of up to 11 rope lengths which will be the adventurous highlight of any climbing visit to the island. With your guide reach a new level of experience climbing while having fun under the cozy Mediterranean sun.

    • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.

      We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Greece, please refer to the Discover Greece or the Greek National Public Health Organization.

      Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!

    • What you get in this adventure:

      • An experienced, local rock-climbing guide with extensive knowledge of the area
      • 4 to 8 hours of rock climbing (depending on your chosen itinerary)
      • All group climbing gear 

      What’s not included:

      • Personal climbing equipment — can be rented
      • Transportation to Kalymnos
      • In-island transportation 
      • Meals and snacks
      • Accommodation 
    • If you can climb a ladder, you’re good to go. Being in good shape is always a plus but far from necessary. Rock climbing is all about using good movement technique rather than muscling up a cliff using brute strength. To ensure you have a fun day, your guide will choose routes that best suit your skill and fitness level.

    • Kalymnos has plenty of options for beginner climbers. Whether you’ve never climbed before or are transitioning from the gym to outdoor climbing, your guide will customize the day to suit your skill level and objectives. With a guide by your side, you’ll learn something new, stay safe on the rocks, and most importantly, have fun!

      For intermediate to advanced climbers, Kalymnos has loads of routes to spend the day on. Your guide will discuss your objectives and customize the day to your goals. Let your guide plan the day so you can focus on developing your skills while climbing the classic routes or best hidden gems the area has to offer.

    • All group technical climbing equipment will be provided by your guiding service. All private climbing equipment can be rented in Kalymnos. However, if you have your own gear, feel free to bring it. You’ll need:

      • Helmet
      • Harness with a locking carabiner, belay device, and chalk bag
      • Rock shoes (included in the price, but we recommend bringing your own if you have them)

      Here’s a list of the equipment we suggest you bring:

      • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed (around a 40L bag)
      • Water bottle
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
      • Sunglasses
      • Camera — optional

      Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

    • Group sizes and prices:

      • For these private climbs, the max client-to-guide ratio is 4:1, and cost is per person. Costs per person decreases as the group grows.
      • For multi-pitch climbs, the max client-to-guide ratio is 2:1, and cost is per person.

      Climbing in Kalymnos can be arranged for bigger groups. Contact us prior to booking.

      Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors younger than 18 may be permitted to climb on a case-by-case basis, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.

      If your group has climbers under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

    • There are direct flights to Kalymnos via Athens several times per week, though most climbers and vacationers elect to fly to the nearby island Kos. From Kos, climbers can take a taxi to the port at Mastichari and then ferry over to Pothia on Kalymnos. From Pothia, you can take a taxi to Masouri, and start climbing.

      Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place to meet — either at the climbing area’s parking lots or nearby markets/coffee shops. From there, you’ll head to the crag and begin your day of climbing!
