Description

The best way to describe this climb is that it is overhanging 3D syfi climbing with hard moves in between good no hands rests. You feel like you are in some alternative universe. When you look up the route you see endless stalactites and blobs. Also if you want a better idea what the features are like, google the ancient Greek good Priapos. Enjoy

There is nothing I would consider “hard” (or bouldery) on this route. You can knee-bar everywhere, and there are several sit-down rests where you can shake out forever. The difficulty come in stringing it all together, and choosing the easiest line through an overwhelming and confusing forest of tufa. Often the easiest line is *not* the bolt line, and there is chalk everywhere. The route overhangs more than 100’.

I believe this route—and those like it on the island—are truly special and define Kalymnos climbing, and why people should come here to climb. Mar 18, 2018
