Rock climbing easy

ROCK CLIMBING EASY During our last courses on Kalymnos Island, we have visited some sectors which have been just recently opened. In particular, we have climbed in those areas where there are almost only easy routes from 4a to 6a, also suitable for beginners. We have been climbing in recently opened sectors on fantastic and still "stinging" rocks with routes that sometimes exceed 30 metres. Strongly recommended is the new climbing area of Telendos Island where there are ca. 30 routes of all difficulties (from 3a to 8a). Wherever you are, you can enjoy the panorama, uncontaminated nature and the blue sea typical for Kalymnos. We recommend to wear long, technical climbing trousers both to avoid the pungent shrubs and to protect the knees during climbing. On the new, easy and sharp slabs of Kalymnos, falling while leading is absolutely to be avoided.

SOMETING DIFFERENT 5C+***!

klettern leicht

KLETTERN LEICHT Waehrend unserer letzten Kurse auf der Insel Kalymnos, haben wir auch einige neu eroeffnete Klettergebiete besucht. Wir sind haupsaechlich auf den auch fuer Anfaenger geeigneten, leichten Routen von 4a bis 6a geklettert, wo der Fels noch neu und scharf ist und die Routen bis ca. 30 m lang sind. Empfehlenswert ist der neue Sektor auf der Insel Telendos, wo etwa dreissig Touren in allen Schwierigkeiten (von 3a bis 8a) zur Auswahl stehen. Ueberall kann man das Panorama geniessen, die unberuehrte Natur und das tiefblaue Meer, was fuer Kalymnos typisch ist. Wir empfehlen immer lange, technische Kletterhosen zu tragen, um die Knie waehrend der Kletterei zu schuetzen sowie die Beine auf den Zustiegswegen, die oft mit stechenden Bueschen gespickt sind. Auf den neuen, leichten und extrem scharfen Platten von Kalymnos, sollte man im Vorstieg besser nicht stuerzen (Reibeisen !).

CLIMBING EMPORIOS

arrampicata facile

ARRAMPICATA FACILE Durante gli ultimi corsi effettuati sull' isola di Kalymnos abbiamo visitato alcune falesie di recente apertura. In particolare abbiamo scalato in quei settori dove sono presenti per la maggior parte vie facili dal 4a al 6a, adatte anche per i principianti. L'arrampicata nelle falesie recenti si svolge su roccia fantastica ancora integra e pungente con tiri che talvolta superano i trenta metri. Assolutamente consigliabile e' il nuovo settore di arrampicata sull'isola di Telendos dove sono presenti una trentina di vie di tutte le difficolta' (dal 3a all'8a). Ovunque si godono il panorama, la natura incontaminata ed il mare blu tipici di Kalymnos. Consigliamo di vestire sempre pantaloni lunghi tecnici sia per evitare i pungenti arbusti durante gli avvicinamenti sia per proteggere le ginocchia durante l'arrampicata. Sulle nuove, facili ed ispide placche di Kalymnos, cadere da primo e' assolutamente da evitare (effetto grattugia).
