A stunning route that looks totally unlikely from below, with great moves on perfect rock and a post crux romp to the chains.


If you take a belay at the start of the climbing proper, a 30m rope will get you to the belay and back (or at least to "a" belay - if there is any more climbing above this (a fixed 'biner) then I wouldn't bother, it looks like a cheese fest). Very good climbing, reminiscent of the best of Cuttings at Portland, and not at all travelled. The local guide gives it 6c, with which I wouldn't disagree!

One of the very best bolted wall climbs I've ever done! Long, improbable and on immaculate rock. I would agree with the local grade of bottom end 6c. It's not technically too hard but you need a 6c mentality to believe its possible. Brilliant.

It's a very nice 6c wall climb. In fact quite hard 6c for Kalymnos!
