Description 

Far right tufa. climbs very well but cleaning is a pain. Very cool holds and worth doing. Likely easier than the grade affords.
Note, it's important to have someone top-rope the route to clean it to avoid the potential of the rope pulling hard on the wild tufa saddle and breaking it off.

Definitely worth doing. I didn't get to climb the super popular 'Dafni' and 'Remember Wadi Rum' to the left so I had to "settle" with Axium. It starts out on a long slab, then some technical moves on small, not-so-positive holds, followed by Kalymnos-style goodness through some wild, alien-looking rock. Certainly didn't feel 11d (I think the 2010 guide gives it 11c) but I had to use my full height for a tricky long move below the anchors. Clean it on top-rope.
