Description

A very steep line pulling through a maze of tufas and good holds up to a thinner, more technical crux just below the anchors. Save energy for the top and go for the onsight!

Location

Immediately right of Mort aux Chèvres, going through the very steep line. Multiple extensions exist.

Protection

bolts

Amazing terrain, one of the steepest at the grade, and very photogenic. BUT, some of the worst bolts I've seen. If this mank was replaced with glue-ins, it would be the best on the island.

Edit to add: bolts replaced in 2017. The huge signature tufa has broken off, grade unchanged. Dec 1, 2017

Amazing climb! BUT! As with many steep routes on Kalymnos, this is not equipped with project/perma-draws of any kind. Be prepared to have a second to clean (easiest), or have your work cutout for you while cleaning on lower. The latter option might be harder than the climb. May be worth leaving a few directional biners attached to the old bolts to help while cleaning. Either way, get on this route!!! Sep 17, 2018
