Once again the “Kalymnos Climbing Festival”, a unique gathering of climbers, will take place on the beautiful island of Kalymnos, one of the world’s “hottest” climbing holiday destinations, from October the 10th, to October 11, 2015. Climbers from all over the world, athletes, as well as sport-climbing legends will attend this year’s event. The program includes apart from endless climbing, presentations, interviews, deep water soloing, and also live musical events. The climbing legend Maurizio Zanolla (Manolo) and the three times world champion Angelika Rainer will be there. With sunshine in abundance, breathtaking routes on limestone rocks, amazing sea views and the presence of climbers from all over the world, the festival will create the same unique ambience for which the “Kalymnos Climbing Festival” is known worldwide.

The Kalymnos Trail, a multi-day trekking route around Kalymnos, was established in 2015. As it winds its way around the island, it follows most of the existing 'classic' paths but also rediscovers many exciting old shepherds' trails. The route visits all parts of the island and can be done as a continuous hike or as a series of 10 full-day or half-day sections. The Trail visits mountain tops and monasteries, cliffs and castles, beaches and Byzantine ruins. The scenery encountered displays an unforgettable combination of sea, sun and rugged limestone peaks.
"We have received a report that the route ‘Bridging’ at Piccalia in the Arginonta Skyline Sector has had some loose blocks removed. We caution climbers to take care until it has fully cleaned up. Thanks to Marco Rossi and team from Switzerland for the report and helping to clean some of the loose blocks from the route."
