Location: Arizona : Central Arizona : **Phoenix Areas : McDowell Mountains : Sven Towers : ... : Plaque Attack (5.7 PG13)

Comments: The rock has only gotten more rotten. From the second piton to the ledge it is really unprotectable (>15 feet above a ledge). A cam will fit in one possible placement, but I would guess the rock will break and not catch a fall.

Comments: The rap station has changed. It is no longer in the chimney. Hike down toward the chimney, but instead of turning left, look straight. There are a bunch of slings on a rock. It is a straight rap down. A 50 meter rope is enough.

Comments: It is highly recommend that you purchase the Kalymnos guide book, climbkalymnos.com/. The 2015 version has many more routes than the 2010 version. There is also an Android and iPhone app for the island, play.google.com/store/apps/det.... It is a good app. Both the guidebook and the app help support the climbing community.

Comments: The local rating of this route is 5b. Most of the route is easier than 5.8. There are a few moves near that the top that might be 5.8. I am leaving all ratings consistent with the local rating.

Comments: A great website and a great group of people that can help with your climbing experience in Spain is climbinspain.com. I contacted them and was very pleased with their help. The two guys that run the site, Par Lindholm and Pere Cuyas speak very good English and are very helpful. I recommend that if you plan to climb in the Catalonia (near Barcelona) area that you check out the website and contact them. Without their help I believe I would have wasted a few days just trying to find my way ... more >>

Comments: There is very nice climbing in Keweenaw County. I recommend stopping by Downwind sports in Houghton MI. I stopped there and they were very helpful. They have a printed guide for the area. It will make your climbing experience much easier. The pictures are hand drawn. It will help you find the crag and routes. While you are at Downwind sports purchase something, say thanks.
