Petzl RocTrip 2006 : Kalymnos, Greece

"Long life to Sikati cave"

 
/event/roctrip-2006-kalymnos-intro.jpg?v=1

A new area in a hidden cave

The route-setting team from the Millau Petzl RocTrip had spotted an exceptional not yet developed cave, a hidden sink-hole in a corner of the island of Kalymnos. One of the Dodecanese islands, this small island is becoming a major international climbing destination. Laurent Triay describes "a gaping hole in the hill, exposing columns and other gigantic formations..." Arriving by boat at the Sikati sector is the high point of the Petzl RocTrip in Kalymnos, offering glimpses of this incredible sport climbing environment. For the first time, this Petzl RocTrip offers an open rally over the whole island. The goal is to free-climb the maximum number of pitches. During the event, no fewer than 800 climbers from around the world join the Petzl Team to experience their passion for climbing together. It takes a 150 m rope to redpoint and lower from the men's ultimate route! Chris Sharma, Dani Andrada and Steve McClure get to the top by exploiting all the positions offered by the formations. Charlotte Durif proves once again how incredible her endurance is, succeeding at the women's ultimate route after Martina Cufar. Finally, Dave Graham treats himself to the onsight of the first women's ultimate route, "Les Arts du Vide". Since the Petzl RocTrip, the island of Kalymnos has become one of the most popular sport climbing destinations, offering a great quantity of areas for all climbing levels.
