Comments: Great climb, JTLA. While the name fits, it felt a bit more like being "Keelhauled" or "Scraping Barnacles."

Comments: brucy...there are other venues to handle your numerous complains. Perhaps take Chris's and Adam's suggestions to heart and do the community a service by adding whatever hardware you deem appropriate to bring the anchor up to your standard.

Comments: Yeah...the old hanging towel trick is pretty slick (no pun intended) but definitely invalidates the onsight ascent.

Comments: +1 on G. Halsne comments. Sweet little area, but the routes definitely need cleaning. The routes at the far left have many loose, insecure blocks.

Comments: Well, when in Kalymnos do as the locals do. It certainly helps with route location and getting oriented to the crag, but it just seems wrong. IMHO.

Comments: Not trying to be a jerk, but sorry, Ben, that's just funky. I can appreciate why you have that setup as we've been there ourselves. Why not clip the 2nd GriGri directly into the belay loop and forgo the two extra locking carabiners?

Comments: Kelly...how can you claim to not be that kind of guy (to seriously downgrade routes) when you just downgraded "Pig and a Poke," then did the same thing to "Mr. Maxle" on Zippy Rock in Joshua Tree?? Todd Gordon didn't downgrade it, which speaks volumes for the validity of the 5.8 rating.
