The garden that was secret is now famous as the place to be for shady afternoon climbing with a typical, beautiful seaside setting. Not unusual to see more than 50 people here during peak season.


Starting at the very steep concrete road near Skalia village (37.0415, 26.9481) drive upwards to and past the col (About 250 m asl). After the 5th and last hairpin turn on your way down, you reach a gravel path to the left. (37.0515, 26.9572) There's room for scooters to park next to the concrete road and you will often times see a lot of them already standing there, because it's the same spot as for The Beach.

Follow the gravel path going north to a pass on the ridge. From this pass go right and downhill to reach the cliff (that you will see at the very end).

Ethic inherited from Kalymnos

Fully bolted sport climbing with a documented bolting standard.
