The crags of Telendos:
Telendos is a very nice place where to spend quiet holidays far from any motors and noises…It’s a perfect place to stay with your familly. You can rent a room from 25 euros per night! There are routes for all level and you can stay there for a good 2 weeks of climbing… It’s more quiet than Kalymnos and you will really feel the wilderness there.
Don’t forget to stop for a drink in the village before or after climbing. You can find also very nices restaurant with traditional and fresh see food!
But let’s talk about the sectors:
4 project wait for you + one of the best 7a+ and 7c(+) you can find in our island !! This 45 degres roof is a realy incredible place. Routes from the grade F5b to the 9a project??…More info and pictures soon. North Face, very good for the warms but windy days. (if it’s not windy, it will be damp)

This fantastique sectore is great for it’s routes from the 6c+ to the 8a, 35m, climbing on big jugs with long reachs!
Pescatore is a perfect sector for the warm days. It’s very good to go there for the shade and to climb some routes in an other style than Irox. It’s the perfect continuation after climbing in Irox or in Eros sector.
