The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival 2014

The third edition of “The North Face® Kalymnos Climbing Festival”, a unique gathering of climbers and sport-climbing legends, will take place on Kalymnos, the beautiful sun-drenched island of the Dodecanese, from October 9, 2014 to October 12, 2014.

Many of the world’s best athletes as well as sport-climbing legends will attend this year’s four-day festival. Among the climbing legends are John Dunne (UK), Jean-Baptiste Tribout (France), Yuji Hirayama (Japan), Beat Kammerlander and Gerhard Hörhager (Austria), Patxi Arocena (Spain) and Maurizio ‘Manolo’ Zanolla (Italy).

The North Face® Kalymnos Climbing Festival – 3rd Edition offers a rich programme that includes climbing marathon competitions open to climbers of different levels, a Legends Story Telling Night, the climbers’ beach party and a Deep Water Soloing Boat Trip with The North Face® athletes.

This year’s festival includes a new initiative by The North Face®. For each registered attendee, the company will replace one potentially unsafe bolt on the island for a new one. This is part of the ‘1 climber = 1 bolt’ initiative, with which The North Face® and its athletes want to give something back to the island and its community. This will enable a safe climbing on the crags of Kalymnos for many years to come.

With sunshine in abundance, breathtaking routes on limestone rocks, amazing sea views and the presence of some of the world's best athletes, the festival will re-create the same unique ambience that was already established in the first two editions.

The 3rd edition of “The North Face® Kalymnos Climbing Festival” is co-organised by the Municipality of Kalymnos and “The North Face”.
