Varasova - Kryoneri - W. Face

Pinokio

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Pinokio" (V-, 100m) was realized in April 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.

Some of the parts of this line, such as the dihedral of the 3rd pitch, have been climbed in the past as variation -by mistake- of "Dromos ton Louloudion". The dihedral of the 3rd pitch and the wall of the 4th are the nicest parts of the route. The last pitch is the crux of the route.

As to protection, only quickdraws are required, but optionally a few nuts could be placed between the bolts.

Returning involves two abseils down the same route (R4 and R2).
