ARGINONTA SKYLINE


The remote and quiet cliffs of Haut de Gorge, Ovoland, Little Verdon, J├Ągerwand and Piccalia make up the isolated Arginonta Skyline crags, which can be seen high on the crest of the hill behind the popular Arginonta crags. If you are fed up with Kalymnos crowds, queueing for routes and polished rock, take a trip up to the Skyline - the world looks a bit different from up on high. The walk up can be exhausting in hot weather, but the effort made should be repaid with a great day out on some interesting climbs in a peaceful part of the island - all with stunning views. The golden rule applies - the further you walk, the less likely you are to meet other climbers.
