Gkiona - Pyramida - N. Face

Kerasaki

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Kerasaki" (VII A1, 100m) was realized on 25/9/1999 by G. Milias - G. Kalogeropoulos.

G. Petromianos - D. Mendrinos were the first to repeat the ascent on 25/9/1999.

The line is basically the continuance of the route "Himikon", since it begins from the big ledge where "Himikon" and many other routes end. This line is undoubtedly the hard way to the summit for those who, after having already climbed another route, do not prefer to return by abseiling nor by following the easy ascent to the top. Anyhow, the equipped belays of the route, together with the belays of "Himikon", allow descent by abseil.
