Description

This is a fabulous extension to the classic 5.10, Carpe Diem. Climb Carpe Diem to the anchor and prepare yourself for an additional 25ish meters of some of the best steep athletic tufa climbing in Kalymnos. Start the extension pitch with a bouldery crux (v3-4ish) traverse that links to a single tufa. Jug bash this beautiful feature until the anchor finding unique rests along the way including an incredible one ~35m up the route. I was blown away by this climb, hope you enjoy the experience as well! This is a full 40m pitch, please remember to knot the end of your rope!

17 draws for the whole route by my count, 3 of which were long, alpine style ones. Incredible route, the "tufa bench" rest is otherworldly. Get there early to beat the mobs that gang-bang the normal Carpe Diem all day... Jul 22, 2017
