Rockfax Description
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

Absolutely brilliant. One of a kind. So much so that a grade seems quite irrelevant. A great adventure.

Ed Booth 06/May/17 Lead G/U

Fell a few draws from the end on on sight off a hold where if I had swung round there was a stalactite behind with a hands off rest. Rested for a bit then did next go. Cool route. Physical.

Excellent. Done with some 'unconventional' moves up high.

Patrick Hill 19/Apr/17 Lead RP

First redpoint on my second day on it - Dogged it working the moves & linking it yesterday over 3 dogs, unexpectedly ticked it today first go 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 harder than Priapos, easy 8a if you're going well on overhang endurance. Bouldering on a very long rope - fantastic !

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

Mike Owen 13/Apr/13 Lead O/S

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.
