Via Cordata / Ferrata. “Ossa I” – Mt. Kissavos (Ossa).
Via Ferrata / Cordata. Route: “The Apollo Ridge”.
We meet at the Arioprino location if you come from the north or in Spilia village if you come from the south. The route is located on the northern parts of Mt. Kissavos (Ossa). After we have met, we are transferred to the actual location (10’ by road), where you gear up and are introduced by the guides to the use of the safety equipment. A short walk (10 minutes) takes us to the starting point of the route.
Description of route: Length of route, 290m. The route unfolds in a horizontal line with various ups and downs across the rock face. It consists mainly interesting sections of scrambling traversing and sections of actual traversing on vertical grey limestone rock. The scrambling sections are a typical Via Cordata with the protection of fixed ropes, while the vertical, more demanding sections are protected with cable, thus making the route a very interesting combination of Via Cordata and Via Ferrata, resulting to extra safety, ease and of course great enjoyment. The views of the gorge below us, of Mt. Olympus in the north and of the summit of Mt. Kissavos in the south are just great. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the top / finishing point with amazing views all over, before taking the trail back to the very starting point and our vehicles (15 minutes). Duration of the Via Ferrata / Cordata route, 2.00’ to 3.00’ hours.
Total duration of the activity, 3.30’ to 4.30’ hours.
