Gkiona - Pyramida - N. Face

Gelasto moro

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of "Gelasto moro" (VII+, 150m) was realized on 28/8/1994 by G. Theoharopoulos - M. Anastasiou - M. Pavlidou.

G. Voutyropoulos - L. Mandrou were the first to repeat the climb of the route on 2/10/1999.

The route is found between "Himikon" and "Ftera ton aeton". It begins inside a big cave and it follows the line of a previous incomplete attempt of Blotti - Tsakmakidis. The line ends at the summit of a pillar from where return involves abseiling back down the route.

The route is protected with bolts, pitons and slings through threads. Protection required for this climb comprises a set of nuts, friends and slings.
