A superb and a popular first 8a - and not because it is an 'easy' one. Okay because it is an easy one - but it does goes on a bit. 28 clips and the will to succeed might get you up it. © Rockfax

First rp second day on it - Dogged it working the moves & linking it yesterday, unexpectedly ticked it today discovering a couple of knee-bar shake-outs on the send post crux. The two committing crux sections are followed immediately by a long sustained section of hard climbing taking you to the massive stalactite around 35m into the route. Way, way harder than Priapos, bouldering on a very long rope - fantastic !

Onsight today - but I did try it 3 years ago.

If I was going to do an 8a on-sight at Kalymnos it would be this one. The perfect route for me. Plenty of time to rest and weigh up the next sequence. Well chuffed to finally on-sight an 8a (only 25 years after redpointing my first one!).

Crazy, 40m pretty much roof. Never done anything like it before. 2 harder sections. Probably just redpointed the most onsightable 8a in the world.

Amazing line. Very long and steep but massive rests and a couple of hard bits.
