Ascent Trip Report

See Volakias report - visited en route. Didn't visit the rocky summit with the cross, further NE, but did visit this (peakbagger) summit which, at least with 1-2m of snow cover, appeared to be the highest point (photo supports this I think).

My GPS reading was N35 17.669 E23 55.019, 1977m (3m horizontal accuracy). I measured the col as 1833m (GPS) so it's approx 144m prominence).

1:100,000 map and signboards have 2080m which is clearly wrong - see Volakias report for discussion.
