Celebrating women that climb

Kalymnos Greece

Kalymnos, an up and coming climbers paradise and home to the North Face climbing festival.

An offering of grey and orange limestone parched by the sun.

I was lucky to climb there a couple of years ago.

There are around 2000 sport routes to suit climbers

of any ability.

I can’t remember the name of this climb, because the combination of the view across to the Telendos island (which also offers some great routes), the emerging sunset, and the freedom of doing that climb just took my breath away.

I never strayed above a 6a on any route but for me it’s all about exposure and adventure. A wonderful memory and one I hope to repeat again one day.
