Anna Liza

Mixed, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Anna Lisa" (II 4, 100m) was realized on 24/3/1996 by S. Karampampas - A. Tafi - A. Vafeias.

The line consists of three beautiful pitches, which are usually covered with good ice.

The first repetition of the route was realized on 25/3/1996 by G. Voutyropoulos - N. Hatzis.

The 1st pitch involves many rock passages up to M2+, while the 2nd and the 3rd pitch follow an ice line which, amongst other gear, can be protected even with ice screws. The most demanding part of the route is the last pitch, where there is a vertical dihedral, usually covered with ice. The angles may even come up to 95°.

Return is possible from Portes pass.
