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.
Altitude 357m a.s.l
A neglected crag near the high point of the Arginonta - Vathy road, with a great sunny outlook. Unfortunately the routes are either hard and quite good or easy and a bit crap - hence the neglect. The hard routes get afternoon shade.
Head through Arginonta and turn right onto the road that runs to Vathy. Drive up here to the high point then continue down the other side for 600m to limited parking by a loose gully with a fixed rope. Scramble up the gully - right with the rope or left by the goat track - to reach the area under the cliff. Go right up the slope - a few cairns and vague paths - to your chosen climbs
|Not all climbs in this region are in the most recent (2010) edition of the Kalymnos Guidebook. However, regular route updates can be found on Climbkalymnos.com.

|Have to be honest and say this is a rather poor crag by Kalymnos standards. The routes are a bit too close together and there is a fair bit of dubious rock|
