Rock climbing in Kalymnos, Greece

Wings for Life


 A huge multi-pitch epic.(5a 20m, 5b 30m, 5b 10m, 4b 30m, 4c 20m, 5b 20m, 6a 30m, 5b 20m, 6a 20m, 5b 20m, 5a 30m).  From Telendos village, take the track along the south coastline until a high cave is visible with a monster rib coming down its right-hand side. Hike up to a point where the the rib can be accessed (obvious cairn), Follow the rib for many pitches on very sharp rock; well-bolted. A very awkward steep corner finally lands one below the headwall. Technical climbing now leads up and left into hyperspace; hanging belay. At the top, throw away climbing shoes, massage feet, bring up your partner then walk up to the main Telendos ridge. Turn right along it until small cairns lead down the far side, heading towards the small chapel on the north slope.Turn a small cliff to its right. From the chapel, head down more easily to the coast path back to Telendos village. A major day out. 18 QD plus gear for the belay points.
