35m. One of the most amazing routes you will ever find up some incredible ground on outrageous rock formations. The climbing is relatively straightforward but the position is itimidating and the route is not to be underestimated. A 70m rope is needed to lower-off and the pitch can only be cleaned by someone following it, not as you lower off. Clear the deck of people before you climb it. Photo page 5.

superb. We just reached the ground on our 60m rope on the stretch, the team after us didn't quite make it...
Probably the best sport route I've ever done.
A 60m rope (but no less) and a little common sense will get you down.
Stunning - one of the best of the many 3-star routes on Kalymnos, and that is saying something!
Nice and was liberally covered in blood when i climbed it. Not mine though. Lots of bizarre rests and a stunning position.
I didnt climb this route but ended up on it after going seriously off route on monahiki elia. It was a worthwhile off route trip though, amazing tufas. Incidentally you will now find a mallon on the bolt which is at around 28m, so you can lower off this on a 60 if you're prepared to trust your life on one bolt, (I also put a clip on the bolt below but someone took that, fairplay!)
Can be cleaned on the lower as wee saw it done twice in succession,but not recommended.
Simply the most amazing route I have ever done. Believe the hype!
What an amazing route! One of the best (sport) routes I have done! Managed to borrow a 70 m rope from some nice guys. You need it. I hope the bif tufa a never breaks off....
Amzing route, lives up to the hype and is much better than routes like DNA for instance, better variety and position. Don't know why everyone borrows a 70m rope, it worked fine with my 60m (at least 50cm to spare!!), though you need someone to second and clean rather than lower and clean. Enjoy.....
Well it WAS all of the above until the large tufa snapped off very recently! Full information can be found on UK Climbing: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=248924
Another football sized lump of tufa broke off at the first band of tufas when the leader ass slammed it during a fall. Probably didn't make the route any easier.
