Found it easier than it's neighbour; Ioli. Really great route. Low down-ish crux bridging and a strenuous clip.

Draws were in already which helped a lot. Managed to find reasonable rests throughout. Great route and a lot of fun climbing the last half!!

Didn't put 100% effort in as I wanted to do 7a round corner and Ed had already fallen off.

A real battle. Pleased to come out on top

When the guide book suggested it was good one to try for the on-sight, I was sort of expecting a bit of a soft touch, not twenty minutes of bear wrestling!

with Koon
Rockmonkey1977 01/May/16 Lead O/S

Technically not a proper onsight having tried the route 2 years ago. But I only got to the 3rd bolt then and couldn't remember any of it, in fact I think I probably did it completely differently. Was placing the QD's as I went, it was a battle but so rewarding to make it to the chains. I must learn to knee bar effectively as Jim made most of it look effortless!

Slipped off at fourth bolt on the onsight attempt. Very greasy. Pulled rope then did clean ground-up so onsighted everything above bolt 4. Great route that gets better the higher you go.

One of my all time favorite routes... just amazing climbing with everything kalymnos is famous for in a single route, knee bars, tufa straddling/humping, pockets and jugs! I dont think iv ever been this pumped and finished a route in my life! got it second attempt!

Flashed with twister beta. Really fun climbing with definite cruxes unlike most of the more steady 7a's in the area.
