Kopsi ton hamenon syntrofon

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Kopsi ton hamenon syntrofon" (VII-, 400m) was realized on 26-27/9/1988 by A. Theodoropoulos - D. Sotirakis.

The line follows the characteristic arête on the left of the crack and consists of 12 pitches (400m). Then it comes out on an easy field (II - III, 200m) which leads to the top.

The route was devoted to the memory of Klimis Tsatsaragos and Takis Bountolas, who died in an avalanche in Anapurna in October 1985, as well as to the memory of Hristodoulos Delimpaltas and Hristoforos Agnoglou, who died in a rockfall in the Alps in August 1987.

The first repetition of the route took place in 1990 by D. Kalos - V. Mitsiou in 14h and a few days later G. Galios - H. Ananiadis repeated the same climb in 9h.
