Gkiona - Pyramida - N. Face

Alpina

Rock, Mixed, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Alpina" (IV+, 300m) was realized on 1959 by S. Antypas - D. Karlos.

This line follows the right ridge of Pyramida, offering an impressive climbing with view to both Lazorema and Vathia Laka. This route presents a particular interest throughout the winter as well, since ascents of "Alpina" under winter conditions are very frequent.

Useful rack for climbing this route consists of a set of nuts, friends and slings.
