Dionysos*** 7a
[On the upper section prior to clipping lower off, 3 kb]22m.

Rockfax Description
Relatively straight-forward climbing leads to a large ledge then step right and make big moves between good holds up the wall above. Don't blow the final fingery moves to the lower-off. Perhaps 7a if you clip the chain before grabbing. © ROCKFAX

Went for the on sight but fell on the last move (misleading tick marks). Should have chilled out on the ledge for longer.

just one more - Lead - 19/Sep/15 with lucas

Can you guess...? Dropped the top move to the clip! Why not place the clip lower and have all the moves in keeping with each other? Would have been my first 7a onsight, but never mind :)

got to the chains and took a practice fall rather than clipping as I sent it last year.

Some nice cool "indoors" moves on some sections and hard to leave the ledge but the chains are just pathetically positioned (unfortunately like a high number of Kalymnian routes).

A bit poor. Could be a much better route if the grade wasn't determined by the clipping!

A little disappointed, tried to downclimb to the ledge for a rest but fell off. Very powerful above and clipping the chain is a bugger! Polished

Great climb. Failed as most do at the move up to the chains. Bit of a eye-popping move once I figured it out!
