Lorenzo, Patrick and Francesco took this experience over the top for me. I was the least experienced climber in the group (having never climbed outdoors prior to this) and my experience was a full as those of my fellow travelers. I also was really impressed with how F and P set a gracious and respectful tone among what was essentially a group of strangers. I was the oldest person on the boat by a couple years and the youngest is 40 years younger than I am so there was quite a spread. It was an absolutely unique, challenging, and inspiring time. Seriously considering Kalymnos fall 2025!!

Camilla from Switzerland
