Telendos - Pescatore

By: Aris Theodoropoulos
Country: Greece, Region: Kalymnos, Town: Telendos (Dodecanese)

Located on the tiny and idyllic island of Telendos immediately opposite Kalymnos, Pescatore is a new sector with 25 routes from 5b+ to 8a+ on a smooth 30m wall charcaterised by numerous large stalactites and tufas. The wild beauty of the landscape by the sea offers unforgettable views to Leros and the coast of Kalymnos close to Emporios, and the climbing is rendered even more fascinating by the lack of immediate contact with homes and civilisation.

GETTING THERE

From Kalymnos take the boat to Telendos, from the harbour follow the pretty trail along the coast towards Irox (50 min). Traverse along the foot of the cliffs and, when the sector Irox ends, ascend briefly to the right (total time: 60-65 min). Alternatively, you can approach Irox by boat and ascend briefly to the right (only 10 min).

THE CLIMBING

Most routes start off with tough moves on stalactites, although the endings on a sharp wall are not always of the same high climbing quality. On certain routes, bolts have not always been ideally placed. On the left are slabs of very high quality, including the incredible, smooth wall of Amores Perros 7c+, the crown jewel of this sector. Most routes in Pescatore were equipped by Vincent Serra di Migni with his partner Eugenia, and George Kopalides. Other route equippers include Bruno Fara, Renée Guerin, Giorgio and Elisabetta Galli, Simon Montmory and Quentin Chastagnier.

GETTING TO KALYMNOS
By boat

Kalymnos can be reached by boat from the island Kos. Once you have landed in Kos, take a taxi to the port at Mastichari and catch the next boat to Kalymnos from there. Mastichari is 10 minutes by taxi from Kos airport and the taxi ride costs €12 - €15 euro in total. Regular ferries and smaller speed boats make the Mastichari – Pothia (Kalymnos) route regularly. The ferry ride takes approximately 45 minutes and costs €4; the speedboat takes approximately 25 minutes and costs €6.00. When you arrive at Pothia (the main port in Kalymnos) you will find a number of taxis waiting. A taxi ride to Massouri costs between €10-15, depending on the number of passengers and luggage. Alternatively, you can rent a scooter or car, or inquire about the public bus schedule departing in front of the City Hall. There is a tourist information kiosk at the port exit. To check the Kos – Kalymnos ferry timetable, go to www.danae.gr and enter ‘Mastichari’ and ‘Kalymnos’ in the respective fields.  You can also call the Port Authority of Kos for an automated timetable message in English on the following number: +30 22420 26594. In the unlikely event that there is no taxi waiting at Pothia, call the taxi station on the following number: +30 22430 50300.

By plane
In high season Olympic Air flies Athens - Kalymnos regularly and a return ticket costs approximately euro 200.
