A great day out. First boat. Lovely climbing on every pitch. 1.5 litres of water each was about right. I led 3, 4 and 7. FM 5,6 and 9. K 1, 2 and 8. 6a+ pitch was hard to second with a pack and 2 litres of water. Onto the summit and round the coast for beer and juice at the harbour

Did in 5 pitches, just under 3 hr. Lead the first 6a and 6a+ pitches - well fun. Waiting on the other 2 groups at the top in blazing sunshine would be better with a cocktail!

Really good climb with impressive views both on the climb and topping out. 6a pitches and crux move are great. The walk in is the toughest part since it has to be done near mid day so if possible use a boat... The walk off is fun though but not in old vans with holes in.

Matt Cooke - AltLd O/S - 18/Apr/13 with Sam Taylor

Climbed as a 3, finished in 5.5 hours. Wind speed about 60 km/h with gusts up to 90 km/h. Top pitch felt like a wind tunnel with the quickdraws all pointing up into the sky from the wind.

Super enjoyable but long day with Wings for Life as well. Seconded this one with the other boys joining several pitches together for some lovely, long picturesque climbing in 20+ degree weather

Lead P2,P4,P6,P8. Lead the reach for Glory 6a+ pitch and got the crux but then had to rest above that. Only rest on the route tho. Hard with a sack on the back loaded with both climbers food, gear, water, and shoes. Much better and more sustained the Wings for life
Simon Holden (LCandCC) - AltLd dog - 27/Apr/12 with Charlotte Goedvolk

Boat 2euro to Telendos village, lovely walk-in (45 mins?), perfect day as no slow parties on the route. Took 3 hrs 20 swinging leads. Crux "reach for glory" pitch hard is you are short (I'm not) or have a rucsac on your back (I did). Just fantastic!
Phil Murray - AltLd O/S - 20/Apr/12 with Steve Wright

boat to base of crag ~10 euros each, 20 minutes to base of route ( not the beastly approach idescribed in the book) 3 hours to top out. :)belay at end of pitch 6 (crux pitch) is way out left. ascent number 266 apparently. Walk off is long!
