Powerful moves up the steep wall with a crucial section to gain the tufa. This leads to a technical and crimpy head wall above with a last move that spits of many. Very rewarding!

Really easier than Marci Marck but very nice route
Vincent Maillocheau - 01/Oct/03

Great climbing, seemed hard for the grade, but the bolts should be replaced.
Chris - 08/Oct/03

Re-bolted now
Adam Lincoln - 30/Sep/04

Long arms needed to grab that tufa...and then be able to move your head to see what your feet are(n't) doing... by far the critical move.
carl dawson - 31/Oct/04

Easy for the grade.
Pascal - 03/Nov/04

Certainly not easy for the grade! Dont know many people who thought it was
Adam Lincoln - 16/Nov/04

What is this Pascal dude talking about??? Polifemo is a bench mark 7c - way harder than Priapos, for instance!
Enzo - 06/Apr/05

Agree with Pascal, typically soft Kalymnos grades
Matt - 18/May/05

Harder than many kalymnos 7c's, but probably ok when you've got the move sorted. tricky to onsight.
Ged Desforges - 26/Apr/10

Onsighted and seemed fair at solid benchmark 7c.
