Ascent Trip Report

Jonathan de Ferranti's BG250B.txt file calls this peak Chersonisos Methanon, with elev. 743 m. and 729 m. prominence. We parked near a road corner at 37.6098,23.3680. Autos can reach this point coming from either direction. A trail starts here, and we followed it for a bit and then went easily cross country through old terraces to 37.6046,23.3671. The party abruptly ceased here, and a full on bushwack started, with the usual brush, rocks, sweating, cursing, bawling, etc, etc. The distance to cover is not very long, and eventually we emerged at the top, where the trig pillar was a sight for sore eyes. GPS on trig: 742.5 m. (2436') 37.60327N 23.36588E, 26' accuracy.
