Kalymnos 2008 - Trip Report 1

The whole crew have arrived and we've had our first two days of introductory climbing on a variety of sectors. The weather has just gotten unseasonaly warm and instead of getting around in down jackets and beanies, we're chasing the shade and climbing in T-shirts, with 30 degree temperatures instead of 18. The Euros think it's great, but I would prefer the cold for a contrast to Queensland.

We've hooked into some awesome routes already in the 5 - 6c (15 - 22) range , even on the lower angle slabs and vertical walls, with superb limestone in all varieties. Here's some nice pics from yesterday...
