Steady climbing leads to a large ledge then step right and make big moves up the wall above. Don't blow the final fingery moves to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Tried this 3 years ago as first 7a in Kalymnos and failed. Climbed it as a warmup this year! Progress is progress! Clipping the chain ruins this route.

Not sure if I did this properly. The anchor is about 5 feet below the top. No chalk above the anchor so I stopped there at two incut holds that aren't even a good shake out. Only about 6c+ to there, definitely easier than Calypso. Confusing.. A higher anchor would have helped. Currently no one seems to do the last moves.

Retroflash. Felt fairly ok, used a few very small crimps to gain the larger one at the top, anywhere else it would be called a jug... Can't remember if I fell at the chains last time or managed to clip them before coming off.

Jake Young 29/Mar/16 Lead β

still without rest day, had beta most the way up. reached the top and said "i can't crimp anymore" just about managed to clip the chains.

Went for the on sight but fell on the last move (misleading tick marks didn't help). Should have chilled out on the ledge for longer.

Grabbed the chain!

wilchivs 10/Sep/15 Lead dog

Can you guess...? Dropped the top move to the clip! Why not place the clip lower and have all the moves in keeping with each other? Would have been my first 7a onsight, but never mind :)

Some nice cool "indoors" moves on some sections and hard to leave the ledge but the chains are just pathetically positioned (unfortunately like a high number of Kalymnian routes).
