As the guidebook says - sustained in the upper section', definitely agree with that, nearly came off at the top, got somewhat confused trying to find a decent rest when much needed, but just about pulled it out of the bag thanks to a decent hold at the top! One of my favourite climbs in Kalymnos.

Quite tuff tuffa climbing- like to have done this at the end of the holiday too to see how things improved- I feel it would have gone much easier.
