Ascent Trip ReportAttempted after a snowy morning ascent of Óros Dírfis
There is a paved road shown on Google Earth: prohibition sign at start and apparently a checkpoint further up. Photos on GE suggests there is access but with little or no Greek language skills and no wish to spend the rest of our holiday in custody we turned back.
We made the short drive to Ptoon Oros, where we finally found a second summit for the day - very fine it was too.
