Number 8

Most of the new climbers entering the world of trad climbing are trying this route as their first. Due to been easy  many climbers visit the route every year. A few of them did this route solo too. It has 600 meters length at V+ (most of the pitches are near IV+/V) and initially opened from B.Georgiadis & I.Pantoulas. It is a nice introductory route for big mountain faces, although it does not represent what we could call "a typical Gigilos face route".

Approach: You will need to reach first the spring of Linoseli (15 minutes) . To do that, just follow the E4 path from Ksiloskalo (where the Samaria gorge start) for about 45 minutes. After passing a small cave on your right the spring is located around 100-200 meters on the left. From that point you can see the starting point of the route.

Route description: The first 400 meters are moving almost all the time on a ridge with difficulty maximum at V+.
You will need full climbing equipment to do the route, no pitons are necessary.
