Kalymnos is one of the best-known sport climbing destination on the planet and Rockfax is very excited to announce that this new book is currently at the printers and will be published in early May.
This will be the first printed Rockfax to the island although we have been producing guides to Kalymnos for the last 15 years. Initially this was in the form of downloaded PDF MiniGuides and it has also been included in the Rockfax app since 2016. The main author for most of these publications has been Chris Craggs who now brings his ten year obsession to the island to life with this great guidebook.
The book contains all the latest developments with over 3000 routes described on its 456 pages. It is presented in the usual Rockfax style with detailed approach maps, big full-colour photo-topos and all the usual features like symbols, colour-codes and thumb tabs. We have been lucky enough to have got hold of plenty of inspiring action photos as well from the likes of Mike Hutton, Kieren Duncan, Simon Carter and many others.
Kalymnos is also available through the Rockfax app. Currently this is the 2016 version but that will be updated over the next few weeks and this will be a free update for those who have already bought the current package. More on the app here.
The book will be supporting bolting and access work on the island through the Glaros Bar bolt fund. Steve and Sue McDonnell have been a great help and we are happy to help contribute to this excellent fund by passing on some of the proceeds from the sale of the book.
