Crag features

Vathy village, on the east side of Kalymnos, is built at the end of a beautiful narrow fjord flanked by rock walls of excellent quality. This is a great place to combine climbing, swimming and eating at one of the tavernas. The best way to access the routes and the deep water solo cave is asking a local fisherman to taxi you there for a few euros.

Approach notes

It is necessary to hire a boat for most routes, although not Socratic Swimming Lessons.
