John giving DNA a shot.


Buckets! That's the best word to describe this climb but don't let the big holds fool you, this thing is steep and pumpy. There is probably no move harder than 5.10 but the continuously steep climbing will give you a workout for sure.


As with all the route on Kalymnos the route name is painted at the base of the climb about 50' from the left side of the cave.


9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
