Ascent Trip Report

Pulled 100 meters into dirt road from village of Prasino. Hiked up the dirt road part of the way and then broke off on a herd path. The entire hill is mostly grass, scrub bushes,rock and a few trees. The weather at the begin till we reached the summit was unusually cold for Greece. In the village the temp on my car read 6 degrees C.
The wind on the summit was blowing at 50 kmph plus and it was raining,sleet, and snowing. After we reached the summit the sky above us openned and the sun came out. We then retraced our steps to the village and had a nice meal in the Taverna.
