Rock, Sport

The first ascent of the route "Arachni" (VIII A1 (IX), 85m) was realized on 30/10/1988 by G. Aligiannis - Tz. Milias.

On 14/6/1992, G. Torelis realized the first free repetition of the route, giving to the A1 a rating of IX. This was the first time a Greek climber reached this difficulty.

The route moves on a large overhanging slab of great rock quality, to the left of "Natasa".

In order to repeat the route, only a set of quickdraws is required.

To return, abseil down the same route.
