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

For the sectors Dolphin Bay to Iliada, see the individual approach descriptions.

For the crags between Jurassic Park and Zeus, there are two main access paths:

Sectors Ivory Tower to Zeus

Go uphill the steep concrete road (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.

Sectors Jurassic Park to Panorama

Follow the steep ramp at Hotel Philoxenia (37.0041, 26.9407) to a fence gate. Make sure it is closed after you went through! 15 minutes of scrambling from there, heading 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
