Odyssey

Kalymnos, GR

Odyssey is still the ultimate point of reference on Kalymnos. With some of the finest rock on the island and something for everyone, the crag unfolds along 400 meters of interconnected caves and walls with a variety of routes and styles. Despite some inevitable polishing, Odyssey remains one of the star crags of Kalymnos. Most route names are inspired by Homer’s Odysseia. The hardest confirmed route on the island, Los Revolucionarios 9a, is here: it was first redpointed in 2009 by then-16-year-old Adam Ondra, and repeated by Alex Megos a few years later on his second go. CLIMBING: Technical and pumpy, but with great variety: slabby routes from 4a–5c; classic routes on slightly overhanging walls from 6a–6b; overhanging pumpy routes with big pockets at a surprising 6b–6c+, and as a bonus, power-stamina fests in tufa caves from 7a–9a.
