Description

Narrow gorge well protected against the wind. On the left, a short but heavily overhanging face, solid tufas, excellent pumpy athletic climbing. On the right, a nice vertical to slightly overhanging face with longer routes.

Good for all year climbing. In the shade until 14:00.

Approach

Walk up the canyon for about 15 minutes.

Ethic inherited from Kalymnos

  • PREPARE to leave nothing behind (trashbag, etc.)
  • Use your own gear for toproping. Use fixed gear only for lowering. (See first section of guidebook for details)
  • Minimize single-use plastic. No recycling on the island (yet).
  • Use established paths and close gates behind you.
  • Consider a donation to the rescue team (red boxes).
