NORTH CAPE AREA


Above the road by Dolphin Bay is the small crag indifferent crag of Apollo - this is the inauspicious start for the almost unbroken line of cliffs that run all the way to Symplegades 4km to the south. Up and right of this is the slabby and also rather poor Sector Peter and round to the right the much better and more extensice North Cape cliffs. Only North Cape sees much in the way of visitors.

Approach
Head north from Massouri for 1.9km until just past the surprisingly tight 'Kasteli Bend'. All three crags are approached from the extensive parking here - see route pages for actual approach details.

Conditions
All three cliffs face west and off the classic Kalymnos conditions of morning shade and afternoon/evening sun, with glorious sunsets guaranteed. All the cliffs are reasonably sheltered and quick drying apart form the occasional stubborn drainage streak.
