Here (www.climbkalymnos.com downloadable version of all eight pages of Sikati Cave straight from the new book. On the first two page spread with the general view of the area and the approach paths, check out also the location of a new crag called The Beach: with both slabby and more athletic routes, this little crag comes to fill a long-standing need on Kalymnos for crags next to the water and with shade in the afternoon.
