This amazing line tackles the middle of Upper Cave just left of the large cutout housing the 5.9, Native.

Begin with the tricky and strenuous slab before reaching larger holds and stalactites at the base of the roof. Some longer pulls deposit you at a pod where there is opportunity to rest before a taxing and sequential headwall climbed on edges and undercuts.

Keep it together through the headwall as it kicks back to vert and the holds get smaller. Clip the chains and take in the view.


Straight up the middle of Upper Cave.


Bolts to lower-offs.

This is what Kalymnos climbing is all about. Good candidate for first "8a"

This route is pretty good, but it is surely soft like Kalymnian cheese.
