Kalidonios kapros

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Kalidonios kapros" (V+, 100m) was realized in 1999 by A. Theodoropoulos - T. Michailidis - P. Kotronaros.

This line is heavily protected by bolts, even the easy passages; therefore it could be recommended for new climbers, climbing schools graduates.

The 1st pitch goes up slantwise to the right on a slab with sharp rock.

The 2nd pitch is the most beautiful one; the first 10m comprise an older variation of "Dromos ton louloudion" while afterwards the pitch continues on nice leaning slabs.

The 3rd pitch moves in the same style as the 2nd one, only easier.

In order to repeat the route, one shall need just quickdraws, although optionally a few small nuts could be placed between the bolts.

Returning involves abseiling down the same route.
