Rockfax Description
A superb, steep tufa climb with one hard move. Polished, but this shouldn't be a problem except when it is really hot/humid - then it is much harder. "The best 7a on Kaly?". © Rockfax

βeta: No loose holds last week, and three really good rest points, the knee bar is more of a knee hook and helps loads. I was very pumped at the top and had to go up to the chains 3 times before clipping! Favourite route at Kalymnos? Definitely my longest on sight!

βeta: Well i managed to use a arm lock (elbow bar?) in the big hole used by some for a knee bar. Apart from the pain on the skin it was a very good rest and managed to recover sufficiently to tick the route. I did try the knee bar but on one occastion it was too good and caused problems getting out of it resulting in quick retention of pump. :)

βeta: One of the best routes I have ever done. Nothing appeared loose to me, so thanks to all those who pulled stuff off in the past!
