Climbed from Ziria Ski Centre, via Upper Refuge in valley to SW, to just below col. Then Veered NE to follow ridge to summit. Beautiflly clear and sunny, tho much suncream required. Could see Giona/Parnassos (40m to N) like they were next door, could also see Taygettos (75m) and Difris (c100m) clearly. Tough going in knee-deep snow for 4/5 of the way. Only 2 others on mountain (plus 1 dog).
