chalkywoods 13 Apr AltLd O/S Find the famous finger-gluer on the way over to serve as the guidebook you forgot. Start by the painting of a chubby wheat sheaf. Punch the sharp rock at least twice before pitch 4. Sing tanglefoot above pitch 6. Squat out so much rope drag stringing 7 and 8 you top out looking like kim. Avoid the bird vomit before the final pitch. Eat 3 cucumber sandwiches. Descend in psychra and your best rave shirt.

Al_Mac 12 May, 2018 AltLd Led pitches 1/2 as one, followed by 5, 7, 9/10. Gemma took pitches 3/4 as one, followed by 6, 8 and 11 to top out seeing as is already had that privilege on Wild Country last year. I was glad not to have led the second 6a pitch and Gemma was glad not to have led the one I took so it worked out well (both of which felt harder than the crux pitches on Wild Country). The corner felt very awkward but is very satisfying once you find yourself on top of it. 50 minute walk in, 4hrs climbing and less than 2hrs after topping out we were back in Telendos for a cold beer. Not too hot, decent breeze and some goats in the cave that were putting all our climbing abilities to shame!

Wanderlust 26 Apr, 2018 AltLd O/S Led both 6a pitches. Got stuck behind a Russian party of 3 who were v slow. Decided against the overtake due to our poor Russian and their poor English ;) at least 7 hrs on the wall, hot day. The first 6a was burly and I missed a bolt in the excitement. Great feeling getting up it. 2nd 6a felt run out but I powered through. Pat's feet were killing him. Topped out tired and fearful of sunstroke! Found shade under a tree in an alien world of spiky bushes and limestone boulders. Shambled towards the monastery on tricky ground avoiding cliff faces. Found a good path and a kind French party gifted us some water (we were very thankful for that). 3hrs walk out followed by water, beer, ice cream and high 5s in telendos village. Superb adventure. My finest climbing achievement to date, I think.

Joachim Abela 19 Apr, 2018 AltLd RP I lead the easy pitches while Charlotte led the 6a pitches. I did have to use quickdraws to haul myself up at two particular points. This included the point where there is the overhang just before the end of the first 6a pitch and the point where there is a slight traverse along the second 6a pitch. Apart from this, all the other pitches were fun with some challenging moves. The feeling at the end was awesome! I cried a little bit.

Kieran Duncan 11 Oct, 2017 AltLd O/S Mega day out... awesome! Did it as a 3 on one 80m rope, leader tying into the middle and bringing up both seconds in guide mode. Unfortunately couldn't link any pitches or simul climb. Got the 7am ferry, and the approach took just over 1 hour, we were the first at the route with one other party an hour later. Climbing took 6 hours which isn't bad for all 11 pitches. Crux pitch is indeed a bit stiff, but really cool, and could suit either burly or techy climbers. Some other pitches higher up were 3 star for sure. The descent was a bit of a shitshow, and took several hours. The first half down to the church is pretty rough, and not to be underestimated. After the church it feels like a motorway by comparison. We took around 4 litres of water total and it was just barely enough, so pack a little extra. All in all it was a 10 hour round trip, a long one, but a good one... the beer and jump into the sea at the harbour was worth it.

Paul Sagar 26 Sep, 2017 Lead dog Hiked out of Telendos village at 5am. Found the route OK depsite being mobbed by mosquitos. Climbing was all going well: linked the first 6 pitches into 3, up to the crux pitch. Now I don't know if this had already lost holds on the layback - it felt hard for 6a - but as I put my left hand on a catch in the crack, when getting my feet high, the catch blew, and tried to slice off the top of my index finger with it. Emergency taping was done whilst hanging off the draws...and I dropped my chalk bag whilst trying to get my rucksack off. Managed to sort it all out - sorry about the blood everywhere, guys! - and ended up aiding through the crux. Some antiseptic wipes and superglue at the anchor rescued the situation, and we climbed on, topping out after 3.5 hours, linking all the pitches either side of the crux 6a. Good fun, despite the drama. Obviously I didn't pay close attention to the descent notes as always, and so the walk off ended up being three hours. (Who is the TWAT leaving decoy cairns on the top of Telendos, several different groups of which lead to ass nowhere?!) Oh well, all adds up to a nice mini epic. Type 2 fun, like most multitpiches in my life.

The 6a pitch has a very hard awkward move. The other 6a pitch is a lovely traverse. It should be less than an hour to the foot of the route. You need to scramble up a fair way and it is not well marked. Taking the boat doesn't really save time as you get dropped off via the north face to the two folk heading up to Wild country arrived at about the same time from the same ferry boat 30 euros lighter each. The walk is mainly a pleasant amble and a lovely start to the day. Definitely not as good a route as wild country though. The walk off starts to get tiresome in the heat

Jeeedeee 2 Jun, 2014 - First walked a bit wrong, we went directly to the left from the harbour along the sea, but you have to walk into the city and then left. Watch out for nest of birds when walking towards the route. Managed to do the climb relaxing in 3:45. Good walk off, and went swimming at the other side. Nice day out! Logbook is full, but we managed to write on the backcover. Thanks for the great adventure

furbrow 1 Jun, 2014 AltLd Blue paint dots take you all the way to the start. There is a book to sign at the top (in a tin behind a rock a couple of feet away from the last belay)although when we were there it was nearly full. The descent is marked by cairns. The first is near the top belay and if you keep walking straight on past it you'll see the second. Go to the top of the north face and turn right then after a while a cairn marks the way down. The first half of the route is fairly broken but the top half earns its stars. The resident falcons put on a superb display of flying.

davemcummings 21 Apr, 2013 AltLd O/S I lead pitches 1,3,5,7,9&11, Ben lead pitches 2,4,6,8&10. I lead both 6a's pitches cleanly. Amazing climbing, easier lower down but more difficult as you got up higher. The first 6a (pitch 7) has a funky arete style overhang rock to negotiate, not many holds and a little tricky. The second 6a is 200meteres off the ground with an exposed feeling and involves 2 tricky moves - one to move around and onto a big tufa block and the other to get up and past it. Great traverse climbing follows. An epic and memorable multi-pitch, a full day affair and a long and slow walk off at the end - it's only 1 1/2 hours but feels like a lot longer!!!

Brilliant day out. Arrived by speedboat over a very lively sea: those sitting in the back completely soaked. Opted to thrutch up crux chimney, which proved to be great fun and featured a buttock jam at one point. Great exposure on final traverse and headwall. Led Ps 1,3,5,7,9,11.
conorjclarke 6 Apr, 2010 AltLd O/S Led the odd pitches. Pretty great climb. There are two sets of marks on the approach (yellow and blue) and they both lead to the same (right) place. We got a little lost on the descent.

Phil Murray 21 Oct, 2009 AltLd dog Great route, but sadly a party of THREE (from the UK, I'm ashamed to say) decided to rush to start ahead of us and then took pretty much forever to climb it - they were struggling on pitches we could fly up. The waiting became hours & a German couple tried to "push in" leading to a threat of intervention (ie. tying them off). This should have been a great day out but instead we remember it for the wrong reasons. Oh, I aided the crux move on the 6a pitch - so what?

Peter Metcalfe 21 Oct, 2009 AltLd Excellent route: crux is a strenuous 6a layback; otherwise very pleasant climbing in amazing situations. A rather slow party who'd raced to get on the route first marred the experience somewhat: couldn't they see they were causing a log-jam of teams below them? Apart from waiting for them to finish faffing about, it meant the rest of us had to deal with a stroppy German couple preparing to climb over us on the crux.

Chris the Tall 21 Oct, 2009 AltLd O/S Brilliant route. Took us 3hr, 5 mins, helped by the fact that we were first on the route. Ascent number 166 Led odd numbered pitchs, including crux
