Come join us for what will be an amazing week here in Kalymnos. We ran this course a couple years ago, and it was so much fun, we just had to go back! We are planning on having this year's trip be coached by the amazing and inspiring Isa Santoire, who is a top Chamonix mountain guide, but also a massively talented climber and coach. She'll work with you over the week, and help you keep motivated, focused, and laughing, as you scale some of the most fun rock in the world.

Kalymnos is famous for it's wide range of climbing areas and styles, quality well-bolted rock, and routes from grade 4 to 9b. It's also a holiday destination in it's own right, as the beaches, landscape, food and culture draw even non-climbers from all over the world.

The week will be dedicated to improving your climbing techniques, including your leading and mental tactics, all whilst getting a great tan and eating terrific Greek food. Isa will be in touch with each climber in the group before the trip, so that she can focus specifically on your needs and goals. Each day has a slightly different focus- depending on climbers; wishes and needs, you'll cover specifics such as: steep technique, footwork and confidence on slabs, pushing your leading while managing your adrenaline, red point tactics so you can climb harder toutes than you imagined, ropework and multi-pitch technique, and body positioning and efficiency. But, if the rock is calling out to you, you're welcome to skip the workshops and just get climbing right away, too!

This year's course will be run by Isa Santoire, who runs the Mountaingirl courses here in Chamonix and in Sardinia and Kalymnos. She also runs her own courses too. As this year our Mountaingirl schedule doesn't allow for a trip for us to Kalymnos, but there are so many keen clients, Isa has agreed to run another course out there for everyone. (If you don't already know her, you will love climbing with her, really improve your climbing and have a ridiculous amount of fun.)

So, if an intensive, but also intensively fun week in the Greek islands improving your climbing sounds like a good break to look forward to during the mid-season, get in touch. Spaces fill up extremely quickly on this course, so it's first come, first served!
