Wild Country

First ascent: Urs Odermatt & Peter Keller 22/05/2010
By: Planetmountain
Area: Greece, Group: Kalymnos, Peak: Telendos, Country: Greece, Region: Dodecanese

Fantastic multi-pitch sport climb established by the Swiss climbers Urs Odermatt and Peter Keller in May 2010. Just like their nearby Wings for Life, Wild Country promises to become an instant classic...

GETTING THERE

From Kalymnos reach Telendos. From the village follow the trail to Crystal Cave (1,5 hours). Alternatively, you can take a boat to the nearest point below the cliff and walk straight uphill for ‘only’ 30 minutes. To hire a boat call Captain Yiannis (tel. +30-694-481-9073).

ACCESS

The route starts circa 250m to the left of Wings for Life.

ROUTE

P1: 5a, 30m
P2: 5a, 25m
P3: 6a, 35m
P4: 5c, 35m
P5: 5c, 35m
P6: 6a, 20m
P7: 6a, 30m
P8: 5b, 30m
P9: 5c, 35m

DESCENT

Anywhere between 1 hour and an all-night epic! After you complete the route, keep walking until you reach the highest point of the island. Descend from the other side (north), passing by the chapel of Agios Konstantinos. Follow the cairns at first; then, at the chapel, the trail becomes clearer as it leads back to the village of Telendos. Alternatively, you can ask Captain Yiannis ahead of time when he will be making the Telendos – Irox route, and catch the boat on its way back (usually at 17:00 or 19:00, but best to check with him; for his number, see above).

GEAR

15 quickdraws, slings

NOTES

The route was rebolted in winter 2015/2016. For info: www.planetmountain.com/en/news/climbing/kalymnos-sports-climbing-rebolting-project-completed-in-greece.html
