A classic of the area. The cruxy middle section involves reachy and powerful climbing although this can be by-passed by shorties using a carefully-positioned buttock.

Brilliant route with plenty of jug pulling but a technical crux sequence, a bit run out going for the chains but easy climbing.

Terrific route. Relatively easy climbing to a short powerful bulge. One of the island's classics.

Another great Piola route. There
are at least two very different (different holds!)
ways to do the crux. Shake out well after the crux b/c it would be a shame to fall off the
ombleze-like runout to the chains.

The epitome of steeper Kalymnian climbing. Brilliant. Think laterally from the big undercut at the lip.

Excuse-me Carl, but I thought staight on...

Easier to cross hands left and out to good pocket. No need to get wrapped up in leghooks/bars or that nasty little finger pocket.

thought it was a top route but "only about 7b/+" it gets regular onsights and most folk seem to think it's around this grade. Grades aside, really enjoyed the route, but what else would you expect from Michel Piola

Awesome route though suffering from a *lot* of chalk post crux that obscures the best holds - consensus seems to be settling on hard 7b+
