Diagoras Cave




Left of the main wall. Overhanging and bouldery routes in good compact rock and tufas.

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).

A leftwards traverse, with a steep but juggy finale. Clean the QDs by top-rope the route.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos, 2022

Overhanging and pumpy 2nd part with absorbing moves.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos & Chris Ziavras, 2022

This route will confuse even the technicians – There are three obvious sequences through the steepness and on to victory. Totally enjoyable sportiness.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos, 2016

Steep enduro fest with a bouldery, technical crux. Great climbing and committing to the anchor.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos, 2016

Pumpy, fun sports climbing in a nice little cave.

Shares the start with 'Velvet Underground', then splits right joining the roof section of 'Elskling'.

Set: Mauro Calibani, 2018

Starts on the right side of 'Cicala la Cicala', then joins its upper section, heading right through the roof. Beautiful, pumpy roof with tricky kneebars.

Set: Kamil Winczek, 2019

Set: Loukas Dourdourekas, 2016

A steep sustained first part on big jugs.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos, 2022

Two bulges, tricky and impressive for the grade.

Set: Aris Theodoropoulos, 2022

The small cave just right above Diagoras Cave.

A really demanding boulder problem going through the little cave, the upper part needs more traffic & cleaning to improve.

Set: L Birkner & K Steinwender, 2021

Short and bouldery also. Finish as the previous route.
