Adam, 34, said: “It was incredible watching Daniel climb the Grande Grotta.

“It only took him 20 minutes to get to the top so I had to be quick to take his photo.

“He is such an experienced climber that, when he started doing star shapes, I wasn’t worried for him.

“He does crazy stuff like that all the time.”

Adam, who took the pictures, said: "It was incredible watching Daniel climb the Grande Grotta."

Grande Grotta towers over the beautiful village of Masouri on the west coast of the island.

Despite being a Greek island, Kalymnos is only 25 miles off the Turkish resort of Bodrum and once belonged to the Ottoman Empire.

Adam said: “Kalymnos is one of the best climbing destinations in Europe.

“It has thousands of trails with amazing views.

“Unfortunately, it took three attempts to get photos of Daniel.

“The weather had been quite bad so it was too dangerous for him to climb.”
