First 7a+! Got it first redpoint too. Useful undercut crimp in the middle of the crux.

Dandan82 08/Aug/16 Lead RP

First redpoint, terrible snatch move through the crux, I'm sure there are much better ways to do it, but at least I got through it.

Second go this time putting the clips in ground up. Pulled on with really cold fingers and knew it was gone. Second go felt easy compared to 2 years ago, must be a much better boulder!

Two attempts at the crux move then figured it and plodded through the rest of it. Nice little route, certainly bouldery.

Nice little route. One / two hard moves. It is basically a boulder problem with a rope.

First route of the trip - 4.30pm, no one in the cave...perfect sunset! I love kalymnos! Is this 7b in guide? Thought it was a tough little number - fun though

Put the clips in with two rests. Then after a good rest and a Mars Bar got the RP first go. Felt relatively easy. Should try more sport climbing...

An easy 7a+ possibly just due to its short length. Once through a v4 boulder problem type crux move, the rest of the route is straightforward and enjoyable. Loved it.

Had two goes at it but the queue of people breathing down our necks put us off. Hard crux move and much steeper than it appears. Need to work on my pinch strength. One to come back to.
