Kalymnos Climbing Wall

Kalymnos Climbing Wall

At a unique location - directly against the new P+R multi-storey car park and right next to Olympos – a climbing wall, christened ‘Kalymnos’ after the Greek island well known for its excellent climbing, has been erected. Not only Kalymnos’ location is unique; its design, construction and height are extraordinary too. Kalymnos consists of two concrete walls of which the higher one reaches a height of 30.8 metres, thus making it the highest climbing wall in the Central Netherlands. Halfway up, the higher wall is set at an 8 degrees angle. The lower wall (14.2 metres) is set at a 15 degrees angle. Both walls can be climbed from either side. 
In total, the walls allow for 20 ropes and a minimum of 40 different climbing routes. These routes will be regularly altered to allow for sufficient variety

Climbing at Olympos

Do you enjoy outdoor climbing? There are different ways to do this at Olympos. Please note: to be allowed to climb independently you need at least an NKBV climbing proficiency certificate Indoor Toprope (IT). Experienced climbers can either climb individually or follow a climbing course technique or lead climbing. As a beginner, you are welcome at an introductory climbing lesson or opt to attend the beginners course top rope.  We also offer the option to organise group activities at the climbing wall or to rent it out (partially).
