Description 

Decent grey slab climbing to interesting black flow-stone and a fun juggy tufa finish left of the anchor. One of the best moderates (6a-6a+) at Arhi. The crux comes at mid-hight as the character of the climbing changes. A little thinking is required to keep things graceful and flowing.

The finish will help you learn to read characteristic 'kalymnos broccoli tufa slab' climbing that you can expect to encounter around the island.

The bolting is encouraging, making this a good lead for the developing 5.9+ --> 5.10 leader.

Location 

To the right of Pares (also fun) and Scacco. Don't belay from the base of Pares, instead walk to climber's right and belay from a bit lower where the name of the climb is painted.

Protection 

Two opposite facing steel quick-clips at the top, good bolts all the way up. You'll notice the fresh blue graffiti marking the climb, and blue painted hangers.

Bring lots of quick draws (12-14). Don't TR off the anchors.
