P1-P6 follow the ridge and are generally quite easy (often easier than the grade even). Nearly any combination of pitches can be linked as they are mostly quite short. The route does wander left then back right around around P4 which can add lots of rope drag if linking pitches.
P7 adds more technical climbing and the first 6a move of the route pulling over a small roof. It's more intimidating than technically hard.
P8&9 are more technical climbing which can be linked.
P10&11 the technical climbing eases off as you approach the summit. Holds get sharper as well.

Location

Just right of Crescendo. Hike up as for Crescendo, but stop a begin climbing up the ridge on the right at the first opportunity.

Decent:
Follow same decent as Wild Country. Head north, follow cairns to the white church, then path down and back around to Telendos.

Protection

The climb is well bolted with bolted anchors. Most belay stations are comfortable with the exception of hanging belays at the tops of P6, P8, P9, and P10.

If linking or simulclimbing slings or long draws are highly recommended to reduce rope drag. Skipping bolts also helps a lot too.
