First route of the trip - 4.30pm, no one in the cave...perfect sunset! I love kalymnos! Is this 7b in guide? Thought it was a tough little number - fun though

Teappleby - Lead RP - 21/Apr/14 with Jem Greenway
Put the clips in with two rests. Then after a good rest and a Mars Bar got the RP first go. Felt relatively easy. Should try more sport climbing...

more like a boulder problem with an extended top out. Pulling on the clip at the crux would make it about 6b+

If going by the guide book grade it would be my first 7a+ got it 4th and last attempt. Not the most amazing route in the world.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead RP - 15/Apr/14 with Pete B, Nick P, Tom A
got it on the 5th or 6th go when i found a much better hold to use after the undercut, pretty frustrating

An easy 7a+ possibly just due to its short length. Once through a v4 boulder problem type crux move, the rest of the route is straightforward and enjoyable. Loved it.

an intense reachy boulder problem (V4) separates fantastic jug pulling, watch out for the wet slippery ledge just before the crux
GrahamGiles - Lead O/S - 25/Apr/13 with pav low
Had two goes at it but the queue of people breathing down our necks put us off. Hard crux move and much steeper than it appears. Need to work on my pinch strength. One to come back to.
