Description 

Kalyne is the whore of Iannis. He's OK, good for a toss. Nothing worth traveling across the planet for. Still, you might have a ride, just to warm things up. Everyone else does.

Scramble up blocky, low-angle steps, then tear up good edges and varied wall climbing to a stiff and steep finish. Clipping the chains LOOKS desperate. But leave the diapers at home; there's a hidden but massive, oh-so massive milk jug you can hang a Cadillac off once you (wo)man up and haul up to the anchor.

Feels a lot like Rifle without all the suffer and tears. Also feels soft for the official, 10c (6b), grade listed in the Aris.


Location 

Begins on blocky, white-splashed mounds of rock on the extreme south (right) end of Innis—far enough from the hero lines in the cave that nobody will notice you roping up for the daffodil of the crag.

Protection 

A dozen-ish draws to a 2-bolt/1 'biner anchor. First couple of clips are easy enough to just spit on and walk away from.
