Hello hello,
Looking to explore the climbing on mainland Greece (Meteora?), as well as some Greek islands that have sport climbing other than/including Kalymnos. Also looking to hit up Geikbairyi, Turkey and various spots in Croatia.

Looking to start in Greece in early March and be out for a few months, don't have any set plans yet but if anyone's interested/will be in the area hit me up! :)

I am visiting family in Kalymnos from 5 April until 19 April and I intend to climb as much as possible. I am going to post something but was waiting until it got a little closer to my departure date. I would certainly be interested in meeting other people to climb there with.

Any idea when you'll be which places? I would probably be down to meet up for a 3 or 4 day weekend in Turkey or Croatia. I've got a full rack for sport/trad and an 80m rope depending on what you want to climb

Hi Claire/Tony/Joe,

Not sure whether your plans are still up to date but glad to see people are heading to Greece/Kalymnos end of this month as well!
I'm planning for something between 27.3. - 10.4. more or less. I'm thinking of picking up a rope and draws in Athens so would bring that as well. Climbing on lead up to 6a+ up to now, I just recently got back into outdoor climbing so I'm starting at the lower end again :)

Let me know if someone wants to meet,my schedule is still more or less flexible.

Hey friends! Sorry for the lack of communication. My plans have changed a bit- I'm now not going to be in Eastern Europe until the end of April. Getting into Kalymnos on april 25th, and will be there until may 19th. Was thinking of hitting mainland Greece between then and early June- anyone interested/have any information on the climbing in/around Athens?

Hello all,

My plans haven't changed yet so will be in Athens & Meteora from April 20th - May 4th. Down to lead 5-6b+ and have rope/draws. Direct message me and we can connect through What's App. Currently climbing across spain so don't have much service.

I will be in Greece May 3rd-May 24th. I don't have locations with dates nailed down as I'm mostly tagging along on some friends' trip. But I will be bringing my gear with me and would love to meet up with some fine folks to climb!
