Via Cordata. “Nesson I” – Mt. Gidiki.
Hiking & Via Cordata. Route: “Nesson I”.
The route is located on Mt. Gidiki, which is a part of the western foothills of Mt. Kissavos (Ossa), east / northeast of Larisa. We meet at the south end of Gidiki, in front of the climbing site’s “Fithofolia” sector (Relevant sign), where you gear up and are introduced to the use of the safety equipment by your guides. Then, we are transferred (5’ by road) to the starting point of our hiking & Via Cordata route.
A very interesting ridge walk / ascent of about 25’, with stunning views, takes us to the starting point of our Via Cordata route, which unfolds along the scrambling rocky part of the ridge as a natural continuation of the ridge route we are on.
It is a very typical ridge crossing, with constant protection on fixed ropes, thus making it a very interesting Via Cordata route, resulting to extra safety, ease and of course great enjoyment, mainly aimed for families with young children from 9 to 12 years. The views of the nearby Mt. Kissavos to the east and the east / southeast end of the Thessalian plain all the way down to Mt. Pelion, are just great. At the end of the route and upon exiting to the upper parts of the ridge, we have the choice to continue our hike to the very top of the Gidiki massif – another 20’ ridge walk – or return back by path to the starting point after about 20’ of downhill walk.
If we make the choice to continue to the very top, the way back down to the starting point and our vehicles, will take 30’ to 40’.
Duration of the Via Cordata route, about 1.00’ hours and with the approach and return walks, something like 2.00’ to 2.30’ hours. With the ascent to the main top, 2.30’ to 3.00’ hours.
Overall duration of the activity, including the gearing up and introduction to the safety equipment’s use, stops, photos ect, 3.00’ to 4.30’ hours depending upon choosing the summit bit or not.
