With The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival moving closer (see UKC announcement from May), the confirmed athlete line-up for the PROject competition has had some important updates, featuring some of the world's best climbers.
The PROject Competition will be held on 8 hard, new projects in a new sector specifically bolted for the event. With the new routes being divided into men's projects and women's projects, climbers will have 3 days to work on the routes and a total of €10,000 prize money, which will be divided by the number of successful repetitions on each route.
Apart from the PROject Competition, The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival is offering a varied program for all participants: two climbing marathons, a storyteller's night, beach party and chill-out climbing with The North Face athletes being just some of the highlights.
