Gkiona - Plaka Sykias - W. Face


Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Diagonios" (VI+, 300m) was realized in August 1993 by A. Theodoropoulos - D. Mpourazanis. The route begins at the center of the crag, which the line crosses diagonally, following for its biggest part the huge dihedral that splits the crag in two parts. The crux of the route is the impressive crack at the exit of the dihedral.

The 3rd, the 4th and the 5th pitch of the route are common to the line "Michailidis - Leondiadis".

The equipment required for climbing the route is a full set of nuts, a set of friends and slings.
