The first ascent of the route "Eis mnimin" (VII, 465m) was realized on 9-11/8/1999 by G. Voutyropoulos - G. Aliferis - G. Kastanidis - T. Karantonas. Their effort was dedicated to the memory of the unforgettable companions M. Tsoupras, N. Papandreou, A. Maroulas, A. Vlahos, G. Peolidis and T. Adamandidis.

The line moves on the best rock quality field of Skolio's impressive crag and it is found between the routes "Nastou - Kinatidi" and "Faidon Galinos".

The first solo attempt of the route was realized on 28-30/5/2001 by V. Galanis, in 50 hours (with two bivis).

On 16/8/2003, G. Voutyropoulos - E. Karageorgi - M. Styllas realized the first free repetition of the route and rated the initial A2 passage as VI+ / VII-.

The equipment required for a free repetition of this climb is a set of nuts and a set of friends.
