Crag features

Pezonda is an extensive new sector located mid-way along the Arginonta?Vathy road, in one of the wildest and remotest parts of the island. It takes its name from the beautiful fjord down below, which it overlooks. Beyond that, in the blue/green waters, is the small island of Kalolimnos; further in the distance is the coast of Turkey. Pezonda is an excellent addition to Kalymnos climbing: the limestone is fresh and abundant, the approach is not too long or steep (relatively speaking), and cool conditions in the afternoon shade prevail. The very few signs of life and the almost complete absence of “civilization” make this a great spot for going off the grid, so to speak. You can forget your mobile phones here; there is no service. At this writing, sector Pezonda comprises five smaller sub-sectors, and there is certainly potential for more. From left to right, the sub-sectors are Eora Cave; Lemon Crumble Wall; Valhalla; Peanut Wall; and Great Escape.
