Lead P1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. 1 hour walk in, 4 hours of climbing and 2 hour walk out. Superb climbing, every pitch had something to offer. The rock was quite sharp. Pitch 8 felt like climbing on razor blades

Great long day out. Forgot helmet. Had lunch in cave at top of pitch 5. Did the hardest pitch.. great end to holiday

Cloverleaf 23/Oct/17 AltLd

Second day of the holiday and a great route with a pretty easy walk in along the south face of Telendos. Unfortunately we were told duff info about the time of the first boat so were ninety minutes later than we could have been which led to climbing in the midday sun from about halfway. Ran the first two pitches together to save time which meant I got the delight of carrying the pack to carry for the first 6a pitch (which felt harder than the actual crux pitch). Steph got the crux after an impromptu picnic in the cave. She absolutely cruised it, despite having to use some miniscule intermediate crimps to reach the tufa. The last two pitches were on some pretty sharp rock but the actual climbing was steady, even if I did lead the last one with the pack thinking it was only 5a. A brilliant adventure with Steph on the last day of her holiday. The walk off back to ice cream and beer at the harbour (via the chapel) only took a couple of hours after topping out, even with Steph running out of puff half way along the trail!

I lead 1,2, 4, 6 and 8. All enjoyable sections of the route. The crux pitch was beautiful but I think there were harder moves than the crux on the rest of the climb. The top two pitches were very sharp and i felt the last 5c was hard for its grade. Very enjoyable outing. We chose to abseil down in 4 pitches which with 4 of us saved little or no time. The route off the crag in the dark proved very difficult. Yellow dots with a yellow head torch light doesn't work well.

So fucking hot, shoes were melting my toes. Fun otherwise

Lady Vee 13/Oct/17 AltLd

Led 2,4,6,8 & 9. First two pitches could be run together. Crux pitch committing but well bolted. Keep some energy for steep start of last 5C pitch.

RachelHC 12/Oct/17 AltLd

Led Ps 1, 3, 5 and 7. Got stuck behind a fairly slow group of 3, consequently it got very hot in the sun by the final couple of pitches! Had to bail on leading the final one feeling way too hot and tired, fortunately Vee was able to step in and save the day! A really fun adventure climb.

Lead first 2 pitches together, then rest singularly. Some really good sustained climbing apart from first 2 pitches, exposed and very sharp in places. Fun moves on "the reach for glory" then tough, sharp wall above, full on 6a+. The first 6a pitch no pushover, and save a bit of energy for the start of the last 5c pitch. Loads of bolts. Only an Italian pair behind us who were catching us up, one of them was 79!!

Paul Clarke 16/Oct/15 AltLd

A grand day out. Bolts looking a bit rusty and will need replacing soon. Descent should read "walk up to the ridge, turn right and follow cairns to a cairn cluster. The descent path goes down from here." All fairly obvious really.

abbeywall 06/Oct/15 AltLd

A great day out. First boat. Lovely climbing on every pitch. 1.5 litres of water each was about right. I led 3, 4 and 7. FM 5,6 and 9. K 1, 2 and 8. 6a+ pitch was hard to second with a pack and 2 litres of water. Onto the summit and round the coast for beer and juice at the harbour

Really good climb with impressive views both on the climb and topping out. 6a pitches and crux move are great. The walk in is the toughest part since it has to be done near mid day so if possible use a boat... The walk off is fun though but not in old vans with holes in.
