Panorama

Kalymnos, GR

If there ever was a kingdom of tufas, Panorama is it. Next to the equally jaw-dropping Grande Grotta, Panorama is a steep red and grey wall with overhanging sections and a unique exposed feeling. A kingdom of tufas! The extension of Grande Grotta to the right with routes at a gentler angle. __Busy__ 3/3 __Climbing__ Technical and sustained, on long pitches of high-quality limestone in all shapes and colors. The rock here is not as overhanging compared to the big cave, but the climbing is just as three-dimensional and the variety of routes is greater. The huge, spectacular tufa pipes require a lot of stamina. __Conditions__ Very pleasant and breezy, even on summer mornings. Not good on humid days without wind, because the tufas get very greasy. The left side is protected from light rainfall. Tufas may still be wet in early spring. __Shade (Exposure: W)__ Until 13:30. __Kids__ No. Steep terrain.
