Summary

One of the longest crags in the world, offering any style of climbing and difficulty.

Description

The big, west-facing cliff above Armeos and Masouri is home to many of Kalymnos' most famous crags like Grande Grotta, Odyssey and many more. When you stay in Masouri you can reach a lot of the sectors by foot.

Access issues

When you pass a gate on your approach close it behind you! Also try to stay on the established approach paths.

Approach

There are two main access paths for the crags between Jurassic Park and Poets.:

(1) – Poets and surrounding sectors.

Go uphill the steep concrete road GPS [37.0002, 26.9388] at Sofranos/ the italian gelateria. This turns into a narrow approach path that ends between the cave of Iannis and the obvious roof of Poets.

(2) – Grande Grotta and surrounding sectors.

Follow the steep ramp at Hotel Filoxenia [37.0041, 26.9407] to a fence gate – Make sure it is closed after you went through. 15 minutes of scrambling from there. Head for the left pillar of the Grande Grotta.

Ethic inherited from Kalymnos

  • Use established paths and close gates behind you
  • Leave no trash behind
  • Use your own gear for toproping
  • Use clippable anchor gear only for stripping the quickdraws
