A curious pitch which no-one knows much about, but the climbing is good featuring another hands-off rest where you need it. © Rockfax

Have the biggest bruise on my leg from jamming it into every possible position imaginable to relieve the pump. The crux is trying not to give up when everything is burning and hurting! Didn't feel much harder than DNA for me.

Clip-stick warm-up, then two redpoints to tick. Not one where you'd want the arrive at the last move flying on fumes. :) For sure, harder than DNA but well worth a go if you've manage to rest your way up that.

First RP after dogging up on first go as a warm up. Pumped outta my skull but managed to find a decent rest at the top before clipping the chains.

Foot blew at 7th bolt run out giving a fantastic whipper. Lost the will to live on a later attempt in the sun. Nah.

Did okay to about half-way, then got intimidated. Did all the moves, but with a fair few rests. Remember virtually nothing from last time.

It is a great line, much nicer and a bit harder than DNA, with nice middle sequence i doubt it is 7b (maybe for spaced bolts?) Most importantly, it is a very enjoyable climb

Should've Onsighted this really, fell off the easy bit going to the chains on my first try (got confused as there are so many holds to choose from - I ended up going for a rubbish one). Did it first go today putting the clips in.

Favourite of my kalymnos trip. Steady tufa pulling with a crux sequence about half way. Could be slightly better bolted. Onsightable if you can squeeze for long enough.
