A solitary thin crack on the right; the first route passed on the approach.
Don't believe the three stars in the guidebook. This route is sooo bad, the only one in Kalymnos that I really hated. It reminded me of granite crack climbing but much worse and razor sharp. Avoid!
dont get the above comment its totally classic and quite unusual for Kalymnos 6b, sustained technical and absorbing. Perhaps some people just dont get along with cracks
I love cracks, but I prefer granite which can be jammed. Fingerjam Octana and kiss your skin goodbye.
i did finger jam it and had no skin problems: it was great - the sharpness can be avoided. Jamming isnt confined to granite but familiarity with a rock type definatly makes it less painful - except of course for certain gritstone routes! I had more problems with sharpness on tiny crimps on places like Arhi - Dodoni and Poets.
Much better than it appears, very different from any other route at this crag, almost like climbing at Craig Arthur. I used a jam for the last clip on the crack and found it OK.
