A superb, steep tufa climbing with one hard move at 1/3 height. Polished but this shouldn't be a problem except when it is really hot/humid - then it is much harder.

Some of the tufas on this route are very loose (I knocked off a couple) and get funnelled down the scoop when they fall - belayers *and* others beware!
Very entertaining route, which is still evolving. Lots of great movement and position, but we saw or heard of at least 5 people knocking off holds (usually with their feet) in a week.
This was certainly one of the best routes I climbed, it is now solid and fantastic.
An excellent route. Seems solid rock now.
The best route I've climbed all week!! Wow, amazing rock and superb route. Every move is pretty and interesting. Climbing at it's best.
One of the best routes I have ever done. Nothing appeared loose to me, so thanks to all those who pulled stuff off in the past!
yes, excellent route, one of the best for that grade. everything is solid, rope drag was a bit annoying at the end.
Awesome route! I agree with Ben, it's one of the best routes I have ever done too. Pumpy as hell. Did anyone find any no-hands rests on this one?
simm2000, i think the knee bar at about 3/4 of the way up is a no hands rest, but it has been months since i did it ...
Well i managed to use a arm lock (elbow bar?) in the big hole used by some for a knee bar. Apart from the pain on the skin it was a very good rest and managed to recover sufficiently to tick the route. I did try the knee bar but on one occastion it was too good and caused problems getting out of it resulting in quick retention of pump. :)
Seemed solid enough to me. Steady away at the grade, didn't find it particularly pumpy or technical although its sustained all the way to the belay
Nothing loose any more. Absolutely fantastic route.
Brilliant route which makes you work hard but good rests....definitely a kneebar in the hole for me.
No loose holds last week, and three really good rest points, the knee bar is more of a knee hook and helps loads. I was very pumped at the top and had to go up to the chains 3 times before clipping! Favourite route at Kalymnos? Definitely my longest on sight!
... and so it's now getting polished. Much nicer 7a s on Kaly.
nice and highly frequented
