Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

A series of red and grey rock faces which form a long strip overlooking the quiet, pretty village of Arginonta. The short approach and plenty of good routes in the Orange and Red grade bands means that it has become one of the most popular sectors in Kalymnos and many of the routes are becoming polished.

Approach notes

Park opposite the crag at an 'occasional' cantina and use the iron rungs to access the old track. Loop right then back left to reach the crag.

Walking Time: 5mins

Rockfax App

Out of print:
Sector Piccalia is in a completely different place (at the very righthand end of Arginonta Skyline ... approx. one hour walk away). It is not very special.

The 2010 guidebook spells this, Arginonta.

Arginonda and Katherina are the same cliff, the original name, Katherins is used here.
