E.T. Kalymnos, GREECE
Climbs 20 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 105m a.s.l – Faces NE
Also, and perhaps better, known as Metochi Pyramid. The resemblance to ET only apparent in certain light conditions. The original routes are mostly smooth slabs or clean cut walls with lots of pockets. One hard route up the centre of the lower cave with more hard projects being worked in the higher cave on the right. It doesn't appear to take much drainage, so quick to dry after rain. Some of the routes are 2 pitches. Guidebook suggest 80 metre rope is compulsory but a 70 seemed sufficient for all the first pitches of the first 5 routes. The slab pitches are all very good but quite similar in style.
Development began on Sector Koukouvas on the big wall 500 metres away to the left in 2012. There are ten routes here so far but probably more to come. A vague cairned track leads left from near the gate about 100 metres below the original ET buttress. This sector is north facing and shady all day .
