Learn and have fun on a selection of the most beautiful routes of Kalymnos

After 2 weeks on the island with friends, I climbed one more week with Fred. In this week, I managed to improve my climbing, much faster than I otherwise would have done. Fred is a great instructor, has a professional attitude and a thorough knowledge of the island. He works on a personal level with your goals and aspirations and most importantly, he is a really nice guy to spend your time with. Highly recommended!

JonasParticipant of 5-day course in June 2019

One week climbing with Fred was a great experience!
When you are on the rock with him, you immediately notice what an experienced climber and instructor he is and what a pleasure he has in sharing his profound knowledge. He perfectly responded to my abilities and wishes, taught me new aspects of climbing and enabled me to make new experiences (Deep water soloing, multipitching). He prepared me so well that I always felt safe!
But Fred was so much more than a climbing instructor! Due to his likeable nature it is also a great pleasure to have a beer with him. He seems to know everything and everyone on Kalymnos. He introduced me to the best places to climb, eat, drink and meet great people.
Thanks to Fred I took home new knowledge, experiences and a lot more confidence in the field of climbing AND the full Kalymnos experience! Thank you again so much for that, Fred! I am really looking forward to see you again on the wonderful island Kalymnos!

Fantastic day out with Fred! If you have an interest in climbing and are looking for a fun and exciting day advantage you will have an excellent time! I booked a day of sport climbing last year in July. I learned so much; new climbing techniques, a new knot, how to belay safely and how to clip for leading much more efficiently. He made the lesson fun and light hearted, going just at my pace. I felt completely safe and confident in everything he was teaching. I can't recommend enough! Thanks Fred!

DemiParticipant of July 2018

Fred was an amazing instructor and facilitated a great day of climbing for my husband and me! We met for coffee to talk about our experience levels of climbing and what we were hoping to get out of the day. He found us a great crag that both my husband (a 5.12+ lead climber) and myself (a 5.9 top rope climber) could enjoy. He prioritized safety and taught me new techniques that will help in my climbing and belaying for years to come. He is friendly, experienced, and positive and will create the day based off what you want it to be! We felt like we were hanging out at the crag with a friend. I would definitely recommend Kalymnos Climbing Adventure!!

Jennifer and DavidParticipants in June 2018

Me & a friend were complete beginners to rope climbing, Fred made us feel completely at ease & took us to some great beginners routes. I really felt like my climbing had improved hugely after a couple of lessons with him! Thanks Fred!

NikkiParticipant of the September 2018 trip

Great climbing lessons!! Thank you Fred for fun and safe routes and advice! Lots of different routes that was great for us begginers!
