The far right hand route on Poets Main, Poets Corn...

Description 

This sector is the closest to the towns of Armeos & Masouri, with one of the highest concentrations of classic, moderate routes. Poets has 5 different walls, Far left, Left, Main, Right, and the White Shark. This is one of the more crowded walls on the island, for good reason. The rock and climbing are iconic of Kalymnos. Shade in the morning.

Getting There 

Walk, or scooter, to the "climbers Nest" gear shop, in Armeos. Just to the right of the climbing shop and the small cafe is a steep driveway that ends at a large boulder, about 80' above the main road. This is where the trail starts. Once you are on the trail, there are two possible routes. One that moves off to the right, and the main trail that leads to the left wall. The hike takes about 15 minutes.

Fun climbing on sharp holds that moves through a couple small bulges. The Theodoropoulos guide gives this route fewer stars than other routes on the wall, but I think it is the best. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
