Gkiona - Pyramida - N. Face

Mpougiouklou - Adamakopoulou

Rock, Mixed, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Mpougiouklou - Adamakopoulou" (VI, 250m) was realized in July 1984 by N. Mpougiouklou - F. Adamakopoulos.

On 21/3/2001 K. Gabriel - A. Asimakopoulos were the first to repeat the route under winter conditions. That winter version was named "Traversa ton thniton" (III M4 A1, 250m), a route which offers seven mixed pitches comprising all types of climbing (exposed traverses, slabs, fissures, chimneys) and which then continues on the upper easy part of the route "Blotti".

Some big cams or exentrics would be useful for climbing the route. The belay of the 4th pitch is built on a good and solid thread.
