worth it for the view alone

Failed on top rope last year. Got it on lead this year. Phew! (Still tricky to clip, even straddling the tufa.)

migs493 - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/14 with RS

Messed up the last few moves and got too pumped. Great climb at the last few bolts, though harder now that the lower-off is a bit higher!
Nick Arthur - Lead dog - 02/Apr/14 with Denzel Johnson

Beautiful views from the top.

1st climb in Kalymnos. Not happy (might have been me). Simple until the very end when then not nice.

Its great being in the Grande Grotta and the view is spectacular from the top but its super polished. Girlfriends: There are much better 5c's elsewhere!

Not sure why I struggled on the boulder type bit at the top. I think I was feeling pumped and did the move wrong the first time, then felt I had to rest. Pretty annoyed at this poor attempt

Hard for the grade, maybe even 6a. Worth doing for the view, without that I'm not so sure. Was fun manhandling a couple of stalactites though!!

Fun warm up for the tufas, didn't expect the moves to be like they were. I think Pino found a better sequence. Climbed up and down a few times. Really gets the brain going in tufa mode.

Really hard for the grade (5c+), probably because it's really steep at the crux so no time to think it out. So I rested on a bolt for a bit.
