Climbing in Kalymnos, Greece!

Learn about sport climbing in Kalymnos, Greece! A slide show by Jeanette Helfrich and John Rayner will tell all about this wild Greek island dedicated to climbing after the sponge fishing failed. We’ll recommend best ways to get there (it is a haul), costs (low), what to bring, where to stay and eat, guidebooks and apps, the bolts, the climbing stores, types of limestone rock, scooters and rental cars, finding partners and the vibrant international scene every spring and fall.

We will also discuss ideas and put down some dates for upcoming trips.  If you have thoughts and ideas for fall/winter club trips/clinics, bring them to the meeting and let's get them on the calendar!  This is YOUR club so come on out and help shape where we're going.
