Greece: Kalymnos Island

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) The island of Kalymnos (www.kalymnos-isl.gr), part of the Dodecanese islands in the Aegean sea, is the island of sponge-divers. Their stories about the difficulties of the past, the preparation, the “divers’ disease,” as well as the museum of the sponge-divers indicate that the past has left its mark on the future. Kalymnos – located at about 300 kilometers south east of Athens, and 100 north west of Rhodes – is now considered one of the must-visit climbing destinations because of its dedication to sport climbing. There are nearly 1000 routes, featuring stalactites, vertical slabs, roofs and fantastic caves. More than 30 areas have been developed, offering a variety of beautiful routes (Rock climbing sectors & routes ).
