This is a well put together guide and I give it top marks as a Sport Climb reference, but just to be aware, contrary to what it says in the product description there is no section on Deep Water Soloing. Most won't be bothered by this omission, but I was looking for a book to cover this too. A question board reply from the author on the climbkalymnos.com site says:
"It's true we don't cover the DWS routes in the guide, beyond a general reference to them as something to do for fun or on a rest day. As Kalymnos is a sport climbing venue we chose to focus on the sport routes, but also, most importantly, since the hospital services here are very limited and there is no rescue service we didn't want to promote something as dangerous as DWS."
So, get for the great info, well documented sport and trad routes, lovely photography and good writing. But if you are looking for DWS then you'll have to keep searching for more info.

This star rating is because it was never used. On the way to the airport our son's pack disappeared and in it, of course was the guide. He was looking forward to using it. When next we or he decides to go to Kalymnos we will purchase another guide
