Ascent Trip Report

Leading a Waymark party. Staying at Chora Sfakion. With one member of the Waymark party I joined an advertised trip to summit of Pachnes. I wanted to ascend Pachnes in order to assess its possibilities for inclusion in the programme. The trip involved a very long and uncomfortable journey in a 4WD pick-up truck. The walk is guided, but this is not at all needed as the way is obvious. The 4WD truck could not reach the end of the track due to snow blockage. If it had the walk would have been quite short. The mountain is not particularly impressive. The cost was 45 euro. The conclusion is that, whereas a Waymark leader might be able to organise 4WD transport and lead a walk to the summit, it is not worthwhile given the likely high cost and the uncomfortable 4WD journey. Any keen people could be directed to the guided trip.
