Tymfi - Gefyri Tou Misiou - Pyrgos Ton Psyhon

Tyrannia tou hasmatos

Rock, Traditional

The first ascent of the route "Tyrannia tou hasmatos" (VII-, 110m) was realized on 24/10/2004 by I. Moisidis - H. Avgitas - V. Tatsiramou. The main characteristic of the route is the huge gap that splits the tower in two.

The line follows the gap for the first three pitches and then it crosses leftwards, to the other side, and finally finishes on the summit of the tower.

Although the route is equipped with bolts, 3 friends (Camalot #1, #2 and #3) and a few slings, for the last pitch, are additionally necessary for this ascent.

Returning involves 4 abseils (10m, 25m, 15m and 45m), all of which require great caution. The first one leads to a very good ledge, equipped with ring bolts placed on the wall in front of a cedar, about 10m below the ridge of the tower. This first short abseil is indispensable because the rock's angle is beyond vertical.
