Looking up at Wild Country.
Pitches are as follow
Pitch 1 30 m 5a Easy slab (skip bolts to link) Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 2 30 m 5a Easy slab to nice belay ledge Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 3 30 m 6a Move up and right on some balancy moves on a little bit of sharp rock. Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 4 30 m 5c Move up and left on easy slab. Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 5 30 m 5c Varied climbing up to a double bolt anchor.
Pitch 6 30 m 6a+ Move right from the anchor to some reach moves to the right and a few tough pulls on thin sharp rock. Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 7 30 m 6a Head up on more grey rock. Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 8 30 m 5b Easy climbing leads to the base of a sort of dihedral formation. Double bolt anchor.
Pitch 9 30 m 5c Climb the awesome slightly overhung rock with amazing exposure on big holds to the top. Double bolt anchor.
Located between Crystal Cave and Crescendo sectors. At about 30 minutes from the goat gate locate Crescendo and hike up to the base of the buttress coming down its left side. Hike up next to the buttress until you locate the route.
Don't forget a photo as a lot of the coast looks similar.
To descend walk off down the North side. From the top of the route walk North to a saddle above the cliff band forming the North Face. From here hike right (East) above the cliff until you locate a carined trail leading down a vegetated slope. As you descend watch for a small white church on the ridge line as you will need to follow the trail to this church. From the church a nice trail leads to the shoreline and then head right down the shoreline back to the town of Telendos.
Well protected with bolts with bolted belays
I recommend you take a few extendable draws and skip some bolts to link pitches 1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 8&9
Leading up pitch 1.
