Approaching the mid route crux


A great pumpy line with good pockets and a fun sequence mid route. Popularity of this route is beginning to make much of the holds polished and a bit slippery for Kalymnos standards.


Starting on the right edge of the first alcove as you approach the crag.

A far, far better warm up than Circe, right next door. Pleasure in it's own right, too, if 10+ is your grade.

Without knowing the grade before hand I'd call this 6b. After weeks of whipping off 6b+ I onsighted this with little trouble, although the pump was building fast towards the anchors. Something about the 6b+ grade maybe... I've gotten 7a and 6c second go on the island. Tl;Dr -- if you aren't solid or confident on 6b+ you should give this one a go and see what happens.
