The Secret Garden, as seen from the approach.

Description 

This crag was mostly bolted in 2010 and became more publicly available in 2012. It's north facing so it's shaded all day and catches some wind. There are 30-ish climbs ranging from 6a+ to 8a+ (5.10b to 5.13c). Some of the popular routes are already getting polished but it's still new enough that I broke off a tufa so be careful hangin out below the climbs. These are very good climbs so expect this not to be much of a secret...


Getting There 

Take the beautiful scooter ride over the hill as for The Beach, and at the last bend in the road take a left on a short dirt road. Follow the paint up and over the hill straight ahead of you (slightly right).

The Not-So-Secret Garden has a secluded feel and a beautiful setting. An obvious choice during the summer, it stays in the shade until about 5:30. If you climb at least 5.11a, don't miss this sector on your visit to Kalymnos. The warm-ups on the left side of the cliff get sun in the morning. Look for the reddish dirt clearing after the last bend in the pavement. Blue paint marks keep you on the approach.
