Gkiona - Pyramida - N. Face

Sta ftera ton aeton

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Sta ftera ton aeton" (VIII, 230m) was realized on 4/11/1990 by M. Tsoupras - G. Theoharopoulos.

It was the first of a series of new routes on the vertical and of excellent quality northern wall of Pyramida.

Necessary equipment for repeating the route is a set of nuts, cams, 12 quickdraws and slings.

As far as return is concerned, there are two options. The first one is to abseil either back down the route, or another neighbouring, newer one. The second one is to follow the easy ascent to the summit and from there to descend by taking the path.

L. Giannakoulis - C. Mpelogiannis were the first to repeat the route on 27/5/1991.
