Superb climbing on good holds all the way. A classic route despite the polish.


polished and slippery, though seeing much less trafic now that is not a soft touch 6b+ any more.

Superb but pumpy

I found it too polished to be enjoyable.

Great route with good holds all the way.

It may be polished by Kalymnos standards, but it hardly diminishes from a great route. Solid 6b+ in my book, I found clipping the chain was the crux - big jugs but pumpy.

nice route! I mean its a standard 6b+, but the chain should be placed lower!!

Standard 6b in my opinion and easier than Hari Kari (also 6b) at Sparticus...

Didn't think it was 'that' polished and it didn't detract from the quality of the route. Chain lower?!! You clip it from a hold that you could park a double Decker bus on!!!!
