The first ascent of the route "Epagelmaties" (II+ 3 M3, 240m) was realized on 10/2/1992 by H. Lampris - M. Tsoupras and K. Tsoukleidis - G. Kitantzis.
This line is the main target of every novice climber. It is one of the first routes realized at the area of Vardousia and it presents a rather sectional difficulty.
The first ascent was realized under poor snow conditions. The most challenging passage of the route is the entrance to the narrow gully of the 5th pitch.
In order to repeat this climb, the necessary equipment should comprise a set of nuts, a set of friends, 1 - 2 pitons and slings.
Return is possible from Portes pass.
