/ Easy Kalymnos
Yes there will be loads in the 5 area for Mrs C to do keep her occupied for a couple of weeks without having to try a 6. Get the flights booked!
Yes easily and would agree with previous comment re still being high quality
As everybody else has said, there's lots of high quality routes in the 5's, depending on how recent your guide is there may be more than listed. Development doesn't seem limited to high grade routes. The easier routes are also really well bolted, unlike some work pram destinations which I've been to. Given that you may find your other half happy to get on some 6A's, my ex did when we went out there.
Thanks all for the info. That tallies with my memory but I wasn't really taking much notice around that grade on my previous trips. Much appreciated. Mrs C says thanks too.
I have done over 500 different routes on Kaly, the vast majority of those being 6b and under. All but a tiny minority were great! A lot of the better stuff is round at Arginonda and beyond or over on Telendos, rather then on the crags above Masouri. Enjoy!
We were there for 10 days and barely scratched the surface. It's mostly overgraded as well (I usually only climb 5+ but was leading 6a on day 1).
