Arhontopoulo

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Arhontopoulo" (V, 500m) was realized in August 1995 by K. Tzovaras - K. Sozos. This line has a special beauty, pros are easy to be placed (except for the 1st pitch) and the quality of the rock is generally good.

Starting from the base of the characteristic gully, which must be avoided because there is a big overhang at the first 10m, the route follows the slabs to the right where a piton and a sling are found. On the top of this tower, cross to the left and set the belay in the gully. Go on up to the ridge and from there right to the top.

Climbing this route requires approximately 6 hours.
