Steady climbing leads to an intermediate lower-off (6b to here). Then the technical climbing kicks in to a desperate finish. © Rockfax

Very humid so greasy up to crux near the top (black jugs very slippery). Hard to onsight I think but good moves and nicely sustained from 3rd bolt from top.

Mega pitch - unexpected onsight. Felt harder than other 7b+'s.

2nd go. 1st hard route on Kaly - amazing climbing with wicked finish. I thought 7c was fair

Got to last but one bolt on onsight and then had 2 redpoint attempts but didnt get any higher. For future ref BETA: At scoop where it gets hard Span leftwards off good pocket/sidehold and off an outside LF aiming for a hidden ticked sidehold on rib for LH cross RF thru by LF and bridge RF on small crozzle holding sidepull cross RH to slopey jug above sidehold and LH out to sloper LF out to edge move up and get LH in good pocket and try to shake LF up on sloper (clip?) RH up to slopey crimp on top of lump bring RF in under to black area so can get LF up a bit on crozzly foothold LH layaway lump RH to gaston crimp terrible looking square cut hold. Use this to rock up and lurch for sinker pocket jug then pull thru for jug on ledge above CLIP RH to incut on left of ledge LF bridge on bulge up slightly left of sinker pocket bridge with RF on smaller hold LH high to chalked edge LF bridge a bit higher RH to sidepull feet on ledge RH to gaston light gery lump of pembroke type rock then press off this to back hand crack by belay - either clip or match in it to get jug up and left

This is just a mental heartbreaker at this point. 4 more goes, getting one move away from the chains...

Put draws up, then 3 proper attempts; got very close, refining beta every go. This _should_ go next time...

Great line. 7c in guide, and does feel a notch harder than the 7b+'s i've done on the island. Maybe it could go when fresh...

Top class route. Got it 3rd go. Pumped out of my brains heading for the anchor

close but not quite: the arms were feeling it at the end of 2 weeks and it was another hot and still day with plenty of sweat not helping things on some of the more rounded holds. have final moves sorted now and confident of getting this if fresh. one of the best ive been on in Kalymnos.

ksjs 01/Sep/08 Lead dog

stunning - clock was ticking when i got to the crux section: unobvious sequence on 1st acquaintance. one of Kalymnos' best!
