A super classic, climbing to the right of the big rounded arete, never desperate and never ending - 30m of pumpdom with knee-bars galore. Hot-shots run races on the route - not that it really needs any more polishing!


This one route is all the reason any climber should need to visit Kalymnos. One of the best power-endurance routes on the planet. Brilliant position, graceful movement, sneaky kneebars, steep terrain, and amazing hero shot photo potential, all combine to make the three star rating this climb receives seem woefully inadequate.

This one should get 4 stars!!!! One hell of a work out but no single move is 7b+. This one gets the grade from the endurance factor. Bring a left knee pad and it will feel like 7b max.

Awesome, and definitely harder than the other 2 "7c's" here
