Tymfi - Tsouka Rossa - NE. Face

Apostolou - Bountola - Spanoudi

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Apostolou - Bountola - Spanoudi" (V, 270m) was realized on 29-30/8/1977 by S. Apostolou - D. Bountolas - A. Spanoudis.

The exact starting point of the line is the col, at the base of the crag. Following a characteristic loose dihedral for two pitches, the route gets to the summit of the characteristic tower, where a big rope sling is found. The 3rd pitch is a traverse to the right (V, 2 pitons). The 4th pitch follows the dihedral to the right and then continues moving almost direct for 200m until the ledge. From that point up, until the summit, just follow the easiest way on the ridge.

Climbing this route requires approximately 5hrs until the ledge and 3hrs from that point to the summit.
