Ghost Kitchen

Kalymnos, GR

Ghost Kitchen is a major crag. With a dominant, massive roofed dome full of stalactites growing outwards like the limbs of a limestone tree, this is a hugely popular sector. On both sides of the roof are medium-difficulty walls, while the pleasant grey slabs on the lower right offer splendid technical and friction climbing. So far there is only one multi-pitch route, “Rigani”, using the full height of the cliff to go all the way up. Most recently, two new sub-sectors were developed— and are still being equipped at the time of writing—to the right of Ghost Kitchen Main. Atlantis features nearly 20 routes on compact slabs that will benefit from more cleaning and traffic. Utopia is the large, obvious cave with tufas and stalactites further right. With athletic, steep, well-bolted routes and more room for new lines, it is expected to become quite popular. As routes are still brand-new at the time of writing, more ascents are needed to confirm grade and quality. Climbing: On slightly overhanging tufa-madness routes, immaculate vertical walls, and delicate slabs, all of exquisite quality and aesthetic value. The only drawback at this crag is the absence of hard routes (above 7b+), though there is still potential for new harder routes and challenging extensions to existing lines.
