On the 30th October 2014 Francis Haden, Gordon Jenkin and Donna Kwok made the first ascent of Eterna on the South face of Tolendos: the first route in Kalymnos (and Greece) to be bolted using titanium resin bolts. This is now the longest multi pitch route on the island at 275m (900′) and most likely the longest climb in Kalymnos itself.
Overall 6 days were used to scope out the line from the base of the cliff, place danger tape to warn other climbers, fix static line, clean and equip the line. The route is fully equipped with abseil stations and very well protected such that the two harder pitches of F6b+ can be aided if necessary.
F5, 6b+, 5+, 4, 5+, 6a+, 6b+, 6a, 4, 6b, 6b, 4
