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.

An epic I had back in 2012 - spent almost 2 hours on it, dehydrated and all, took a massive fall but managed to finish the damn thing. Good times ;) Great (pumpy) route!

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.

significantly harder than Taz. very worthwhile
ksjs - Lead rpt - 10/Sep/08 with goosebump

Slipped and almost barn doored near the top so I deployed a tactical tufa hug : P Went easily this time, compared to last year
