Kalymnos Climbing Festival 2011

During our stay at Kalymnos the annual Kalymnos Climbing Festival took place from 18th - 22nd May. Pro-climbers Patxi Usobiaga and Nicolas Favresse were invited to give video presentations. Nico's talk on Vertical sailing Greenland was both inspiring and hilarious, it's a pleasure to meet climbers who don't take themselves too seriously. On the 21st a boulder competition was held in the harbour of Pothia, below you can see some photos (© Nikolaos Smalios) of the finals which were won by Alexander Hille.
