Ascent Trip Report

Drove dirt road to 40.2560,22.1656, about 1670 meters. Auto might make it this far, From here the road climbs to a refuge at 1950 meters. This section is rough and high clearance. At the refuge we met a very friendly and helpful group from the Kozani Mountaineering Club. I expect this refuge would normally be closed. One of the Kozani group had managed to drive his Audi up to the refuge, which so amazed me that I literally bowed at his feet.

A serious 4wd can drive to the road end, we only managed to get to the road junction at 40.2293, 22.1747 where we were happy to park. From here it is about a 5 km round trip walk to the top. Most of the distance is on road or trail, only the last section has some easy rock hopping. A trig tower and register were found on top. GPS just below highest rock read 2192 m. with 7 m. accuracy.
