Telendos South Face

Kalymnos, GR

Telendos South Face is the gigantic limestone face rising above the wild southern coastline of Telendos. It is best known as the home of some of the island’s most popular multi-pitch routes. A massive face featuring some popular, adventurous multi-pitches up to 11 pitches long. An early morning start is essential. __Busy__ 2/3 __Climbing__ Hardcore alpinists may consider these multi-pitches over-protected or lacking continuous difficulty compared to the classic long routes in the Alps. But unplanned bivouacs have happened here, too (even on the return path...!). These routes may be fully bolted, but don’t forget: above all, they are long, alpine-style routes on a huge rock face. As such, they must be approached with the seriousness and respect reserved for mountain climbing. Dismissing them as laid-back holiday climbs (whatever that means) is naive, at best, and downright dangerous, at worst. __Essential Gear__ Helmet; backpack with food and a lot of water; headlamp; jacket; fully charged phone. __Conditions__ Sunny and hot. It’s important to get an early start! In hot months it’s best to climb here on very windy days. __Shade (Exposure: S)__ Until 11:00. You must start early in the morning. __Kids__ No.
