Absent Friends* 6a
[Fred pushing the artificial hip to the limit on Absent Friends, 6a, The Ghost Kitchen, Left Wall, Kalymnos., 3 kb]25m. Start just right of Joy in the Garden and climb the wall keeping left of the upper corner. © ROCKFAX
The right-hand side of the wall gives a pleasant pitch. Avoiding the groove to the right is tricky in a couple of places.
