This climb is in 14 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Tried on 3 separate days totalling about 7 tries, got closest on the last day of the holiday but there was too much pressure! got to the crux clean then just couldn't latch the tufa jug, had a 5 second rest on the rope and took it to the top. No time for another attempt or we would have missed the ferry >.<

Short bouldery crux combines powerful roof moves with technical slab moves.

Hidden - Lead dog - 31/Mar/13

3 goes, got quite close to linking it but getting spat off the wetness on the stalactites after the crux. After some reflection, unpleasant seeping finger shredding boulder problem out of a cave - not really why I came to kalymnos - figured time and skin were better invested elsewhere.

a pretty stiff crux on this and its no pushover getting established above the bulge
ksjs - Lead dog - 02/Sep/08 with goosebump

led with 3rd bolt pre-clipped (a difficult clip and risky if you fluff it). crimping on broccoli rock going through the bulge with a bit of sweat on your fingers felt tough. the local guide shows belay below the upper cave - it isnt, its out of view (as youre climbing) at LHS of upper cave.
