Kalymnos, Greece

Course Information

Rock Climbing Paradise

The routes on Kalymnos are mainly of superb quality, well bolted and cover every conceivable grade. The holiday we organise here is based around 5 days of 3 – 4 hours supervised rock climbing, using local instructors and coaches, some of whom hold the British Rock Climbing Instructor qualification. The rest of the time you can kick back and enjoy the ambience of the island with it’s many restaurants, health spas, café’s and arguably the best gelato in the Mediterranean.

Once you’ve had a visit to the island you’ll understand why so many British climbers go back year after year to soak up the energy.

Guide Profile

Name:  Lucas Dourdourekas
Location: Kalymnos , GREECE.

I started climbing 22 years ago at the age of 15 in my hometown Levadia in central Greece. In my first years of my climbing I spent time on traditional climbing and mountaineering and at the age of 18, I climb some of the major Greek mountains including Olympus and Parnassos. I also climbed in Europe on Mont Blanc in the Alps, After this I focused more on competitions at the National Cup and I won my first trophy at the age of 20 and became a member of the National team of Greece, representing my country in the World Cup.

I have climbed in a lot of different countries including Thailand, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and the UK… before to visit my destination…

Since 2005 I’ve lived in Kalymnos, one of the best destinations for sport climbing in the world, with my wife and my two kids. I work as a guide and trainer and I’m also the owner of a bouldering gym in Kalymnos trying to bring more local people on the rocks.

From 2005 until 2008 I climbed almost all the difficult routes on the island up 8b, and at the end of 2008 I climbed my first route graded 8c (Los Kukos).

Over the few next years I tried to climb us much us I could because my two kids come on this world.

I started seriously climbing and training again in 2013 and a few years later in 2015 I climbed my first 8c+ and it was the first confirmed 8c+ that was climbed by a Greek climber!
