Rockfax Description
An interesting route featuring some great black flowstone. The move at the bulge requires a bit of thought and higher up long arms help. © Rockfax

What a great route! Climbs like grit boulder problem early on then really interesting crux moves then top wall slabby and crimpy. Deserves its 3 stars and 7a. Don't be put off by the 'easier for tall'. Yes it def would be easier if tall but I'm not that tall (5'9") and I found it fine.

Stunning route!! Super technical, balancey, smearing and strenuous. Just what I wanted. The flowstone formed loads of undercuts but no jugs. A bit like climbing a stone elephant. Went dark and I climbed the headwall by feel on sharp tiny crimps and small footholds

Second try after falling off the crux first time. Really cool climbing. A total contrast to all the other routes on Kalymnos.

1st redpoint after annoyingly blowing the onsite trying to be unnecessarily dynamic. Guidebook 6c+

Yes! Saw the route during a trip in 2007, but didn't try it then, don't remember why not. Was really stoked to do it in 2008, and it worked out nicely! Hardest onsight to date.
