About

Our names are Fotis Kakatsidis and Thanassis Sotiropoulos. We are two climbers and friends from Patras who believe that climbing is much more than a sport or activity. It’s a way of life…

For this reason we created the first wall calendar featuring the Greek crags. The Greek Climbing Calendar was timidly released for the first time in 2019 with the voluntary involvement of many friends and climbers. The response from all of you (in Greece and abroad) was greater than we expected and so we continue our efforts with greater passion and a bigger team. We aspire to make this calendar an institution and with the help of all of you to publish it every year.

Our goals through the calendar are:

  1.     The maintenance and rebolting of the Greek crags
  2.     The development and promotion of the sport of climbing in Greece
  3.     The promotion of Greek crags abroad

With your help we are able to plan actions to promote the sport of climbing and disseminate information on climbing in every area of ​​Greece.

Our next steps: We plan to rebolt the climbing crags in various cities in Greece but also to create more products.

If you would like to receive updates on our action and plans you can sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page. We are at your disposal for any comments, suggestions and ideas. You can contact us at greekclimbingcalendar@gmail.com

Maintenance and rebolting of the Greek crags

The Greek Climbing Calendar team travels all over Greece, contacts local climbing communities and local mountaineering clubs, records needs and assesses the state of climbing crags and routes. Then, in collaboration with local climbers and / or mountaineering clubs, we plan our next steps for crag maintenance so that climbing can be practiced safely and gradually made accessible to everyone.

Development and promotion of the sport of climbing in Greece

We work with climbing gyms and local mountaineering clubs throughout Greece to develop and promote the sport. At the same time we are present at many climbing festivals and climbing competitions.

Promotion of Greek crags abroad

The Greek climbing calendar as well as our pages contain selected photos that advertise the beautiful crags of Greece. We have already achieved a lot of calendar sales overseas while climbers from all over the world follow our social media pages.

* All proceeds from the sales of the calendar will be used for the maintenance and rebolting of climbing crags in Greece
