The Beach

Kalymnos, GR

The Beach is the only crag on Kalymnos that actually sits above a beach. The north coast location evokes an edge-of-the-world feeling and the sector is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and family picnics after climbing. The only drawback is that a lot of trash is washed ashore by the waves in wintertime. A crag just above a small beach for combining climbing and swimming. Sharp grey slabs on left, red overhangs on right. __Busy__ 1/3 __Climbing__ On the left, pleasant if sharp (or too sharp) grey slabs. On the right, athletic climbing on better, gently overhanging red, white, and orange rock. __Conditions__ Cool. Good for climbing on breezy summer afternoons. __Shade (Exposure: NE, N)__ _Far Left and Main_ after 13:00. _Far Right:_ all day. __Kids__ Very good, but bring hats. The path is in the sun. The routes at far right (24–28) are approximately 40m to the right of route krabbe, behind a huge boulder. This small north-facing orange cliff offers some beautiful flowstone and technical dynamic climbing on tufa flakes, cracks, and other unusual features. There’s only a handful of routes at this writing, but they are all excellent. Bonus: the cliff stays in the shade all day.
