The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival 2013

07.02.2013 by Planetmountain

This year's edition of The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival 2013 will take place from 10 to 13 October 2013.

The festival will build on last year's success with the tested format: a PROject competition, i.e. a sort of competitions for a selection of pro climbers at a new sector bolted specifically for the occasion, plus a marathon climbing competition open to all and split into two categories, OPEN and BIG. When the sun sets the festival continues with the Story Teller's Night (a unique chance to listen to the latest adventures told directly by some of the climbers themselves) and beach parties.

Last year's first festival proved a huge success, with more than 350 international climbers and a fantastic selection of pro climbers. But these numbers aside, what distinguished the 2012 edition was its atmosphere, a perfect mix of beautiful climbing, pleasant relax, the desire to have fun and share the same love for climbing. This came about thanks to the Festival, the lure of the island and its people. No doubt we'll be talking about this event more in the future, but in the meantime what do you reckon? Perhaps the time has come to fix the dates in your diaries and book the holiday?
