  1. When Simone Moro and Manolo were one of the first ones to climb on the island in the late 90s, the locals thought they were looking for pirate treasure up in the mountains, as climbing was such a foreign concept to them.
  2. The climbers tend to have to share their meals with the local goats as they are prone to raiding their rucksacks during the climbs.
  3. This year’s Kalymnos Climbing Festival is the first time the 6 legends of climbing Ben Moon, Jean-Baptiste Tribout, Yuji Hirayama, Boone Speed, Gerhard Hörhager and Patxi Arocena will climb together.
  4. Every Easter the locals celebrate the holiday with a mixture of fireworks and dynamite explosions up in the hills.
  5. The waters around the island are filled with shipwrecks and World War Two relics, and is subsequently a famous scuba-diving destination.
  6. Italian is the second unofficial language of the island due to having been under rule by them between 1912 and 1945 Kalymnos is a known climbing paradise, but before tourism came to the island the main livelihood for the residents was sponge-diving.
  7. The islands most popular bar has a tree that is decorated with old climbing shoes left by their former users.
