Greece, nestled between the Aegean and Ionian seas and mainland Europe to the north, is an incredible place. Home to beautiful islands, ancient ruins and great climbing, Greece is a worthwhile stop for any climber. Kalymnos is known for its great sport routes, Meteora is home to bold trad and sport climbing up breathtaking sedimentary spires and many of the islands possess ample opportunity for deep water soloing.
Guides and Beta
For climbing in Meteora, Stutte and Hasse have published two guides detailing climbing in German, Greek and English called Meteora Climbing and Hiking and Meteora Band II Climbing. If you are proficient in German they can be purchased here. I managed to buy both of them at the corner news stand in Kalambaka. Kalymnos Rock Climbing Guide by Aris Theodoropoulos covers climbing in the Kalymnos area.
Greece is easily access through the international Airport in Athens as well as via overland routes and ferries.

Roll over a bulge (crux), pinch that pipe, and collect $200 for passing "Go" AND for sending brilliant those giant tufa jugs up to the anchor. Clip the chains and bask in transient, fleeting glory.
