/ Kalymnos climbing on own (with family)
Can anyone answer my questions please.
Not too difficult despite it not being peak season. I would put a call out on the climbkalymnos.com forum. Also there are message boards at the climbing shops in missouri where people are always looking for climbing partners. Lastly you could try befriending a group of climbers on the ferry over.
I always go in August, its peak for the beach but by all accounts quieter at the crags than your Sep - Dec climbing peak.
I always go early doors, 7am - 1130am when the sun hits the crags then on the beach for the afternoon which keeps the girlfriend happy. On a good day she may even let us climb after 5pm when the suns off the rocks.
I stay in Massouri and hire a scooter for cheap. Climbing is generally 10 mins scooter and 5-30 mins walk ins.
Plenty of people you could snatch a belay with or pre organise a few morning meet ups before you fly out on the Kaly message board.
I would recommend putting an add in the climbers nest (if its still open)or even the bakery next to mikes bikes. You could also put a card in one of the climbers bars and speak to Steve and Sue at galaros bar.
Keep your phone on you and check your emails.
I have found many partners in the past from all over the world, most were great company.
as for the heat, well your man above nailed it, get up early and climb till the sun hits then hit the beach. It keeps everyone happy.
Enjoy its a great place.
