EASTER CLIMBING CAMP, Kalymnos20.04.2019 - 27.04.2019

Make the most of Easte holidays and get out on the rock in one of the best and most popular climbing destination, Kalymnos. Hundreds of sport routes and serious crags give you plenty of time to work on your technique with our guides’ help.

At Easter we all get some time off but most people spend it doing little else than stuffing their faces with chocolate. But this could be the perfect opportunity to crank some of Europe’s best crags. It definitely beats getting indigestion.

The Rockbusters Easter Climbing Camp is your chance to get out on the face during your holidays. Our destination is Kalymnos and there is no need for more  words. There are hundreds of sport routes and slabs to crank. And at this time of year you’ll find some really peaceful and empty crags to climb.

Climb as much as you want and we’ll provide you with our expert one-on-one video and photo analysis. If you’ve already got a bit of climbing experience and are looking to take it to the next level then this is the perfect time to do it.

Our Easter camp focuses on:

  • Slab/vertical ground to improve footwork and climbing efficiency

  • Balance and foot placement to develop better technique for more confident climbing (leading comfortably F5 or more)

  • Overhangs and steep sections to develop strength and confidence (leading comfortably F6c or more)

  • On-sight/red point aimed at climbers who are confident enough with their balance, footwork and have already acquired the basics of climbing technique

On the course we try to focus on more challenging routes working towards leading F6c and above, as well as red point and on-sight attempts.

All Rockbusters camps are dedicated to climbing but we also have a great time off the rock. Come with us and you get the whole climbing experience, both during the day and at night, when we enjoy kicking back and relaxing. We love to welcome new guests and try to make everyone feel like part of the family.
