|Date:||Wednesday, June 22, 2016|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||7316 ft / 2229 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA paved road leads to the Falakro Ski Center 2 km NW of the peak: http://www.gtp.gr/TDirectoryDetails.asp?ID=38034 In the summer this is a hub of sheep & goat ranching.
Autos will likely park here, but with high clearance we drove a bumpy limestone road to a junction at 41.3034,24.0828 where we parked. We walked ski center roads and easy terrain about 3 km. to the top. On the way we passed an impressive sinkhole at 41.2946, 24.0900 which had snow at the bottom. The trig pillar at top measured 2234.5 m. elevation, with 7 m. accuracy. A contender peak 1.5 km to the SE is mapped lower and this was confirmed by sight level.
We took an alternate route back, heading east off the peak down to a jeep road, and then walking the road WNW back to our vehicle.
