Beginners' Day

  • Rock climbing 4 rookies
    Yesterday was the 1st day at the rocks for the rookies...
    After a hard winter learning how to climb indoors, we finally did what other people would kill to have so close, we went to the mountain and it was exactly as we imagined it - awesome!!
    One huge thank you to Loukas Dourdourekas & Alexandra Romanou for their patience and support.
    You guys make it seem soooo easy - which actually it is when you have such great guides.
    I strongly recommend that everybody should try rock climbing at least once... It's safe & fun as you can see.

Im Kletter-Gym des Weltmeisters auf griechischer Insel Kalymnos Vollst?ndigen Artikel auf Suite101.de lesen: Im Kletter-Gym des Weltmeisters auf griechischer Insel Kalymnos

Indoor-Climbing bietet Trainingsm?glichkeiten f?r die Felsen von Kalymnos. Der griechische Klettermeister Durdurekas unterst?tzt Kletterer jeglichen Alters

H?ngt er nicht in den Felsen dieser Welt, besch?ftigt sich der Champion mit der Ausbildung kommender Generationen. Loukas Durdurekas ist griechischer Klettermeister und f?rdert in seiner Kletterhalle auf der Insel Kalymnos junge Klettertalente. W?hrend er letzte Hand an die neuen Griffe legt, berichtet Alexandra von der Leidenschaft ihres Mannes: ?Rockclimbing is his life, since he started this fascinating sports in his hometown Livadia near Athens. Today he likes to introduce climbing to Kalymnians and the rest of the world.? ?bersetzt: ?Klettern ist seine gro?e faszinierende Leidenschaft, seit er mit dem Sport in seiner Heimatstadt Livadia, nahe Athen begann. Heute m?chte er seinen Landsleuten und am liebsten der ganzen Welt den Klettersport n?her bringen.?

Training am Kunststofffelsen oder auf unz?hligen Routen der Insel Kalymnos

Als leidenschaftlicher Klettermeister, die grandiose Natur der griechischen Felsen vor Augen, setzte er die Idee um, nahe dem Sport-Stadion einen Kunststofffelsen zu Indoor-Trainingszwecken aufzubauen. "Climbing can be more controlled in this kind of setting and will be for beginners more safe than outdoor at the real rocks", erkl?rt das kletternde Paar die Vorteile in der Halle.

?bersetzt: "In dieser Art Kletter-Gym ist Klettern sehr kontrolliert und f?r Anf?nger sicherer als draussen an den realen Felsen. Unser dreij?hriger Sohn Jason klettert, seit er zwei Jahre alt ist?, erz?hlt Alexandra, ?die Tochter Zoe ist jetzt zwei Jahre alt, schaut schon und probiert sich an den bunten Griffen aus.? Der griechische Meister fokussiert seit nunmehr 15 Jahren seine sportlichen Aktivit?ten auf den Klettersport und der Erfolg gibt ihm Recht. Heute ist Durdurekas griechischer "Champion of Climbing". Weltweit stehen Wettk?mpfe an, im Oktober letzten Jahres fanden die griechischen Meisterschaften statt. Ihm ist es dabei immer wichtig, den griechischen Klettersport in die Welt?ffentlichkeit zu tragen, wie die Olympische Idee einst. ?Heutzutage hat Griechenland leider sehr wenig Mittel, um Athleten oder Klettermeister zu den Weltmeisterschaften zu schicken?, verweist Alexandra auf die schwierigen Zeiten, ?aber die Kletterhalle auf unserer Insel ist ein Punkt mehr, die ?ffentlichkeit auf unsere Sch?tze und Qualit?ten aufmerksam zu machen.?
