THAT'S HOW IT ALL BEGAN
twenty-five years ago
while having our coffee on the terrace of our house and gazing at Mount
Artemisio 1679 m, that we decided to visit it. That's how it all started.
Then we climbed Mount Taygetus 2404 m. and we camped on the peak of Mount Epano Chrepa 1559 m. Since then we have climbed several mountains of the peloponnese, Macedonia, Greek Mainland and Epirus, such as the Mount Olympus 2917 m, Smolikas 2637 m, Grammos 2520 m, Giona 2510 m and Vardousia 2495 m, all being some of the highest mountains of Greece. We camped on the peak of Ostrakina 1981m during winter and then we had some lessons concerning specific climbing techniques on the peak of Styga, Taygetus, Ziria and Vardousia twice. We kept on trying, having the peak of
Mount Olympus as our final objective.We continued climbing and crossing high mountains of Greece (such as Roumelis crossing and Pendadaktilos crossing in the mount Taygetus). Then we attempted to climb Mont Blanc 4807 m. in the Alps twice. However, our second attempt was the successful one.
The summer of 2005 the dream comes true as we climb to the tallest peak of Europe, the Elbrus - Caucasus 5642 m. The autumn 2008 we were in Africa, in Morocco, in the mountain of Atlas 4167 m.
Sometime people should know that climbing is not just a simple walk in the
country, but it includes long ascents on mountainous groups, easy or difficult
passages and high mountains. We should not forget that climbing societies are
primarily athletic associations and they do not simply consist of some people
who just want to have fun for the weekend. For all the above reasons we decided
make this site, not only to make something new but also because we believe that everybody should know what the real meaning of climbing is. In this site you will be able to find suggested routes that you can follow, the best equipment you can get while climbing, several climbing news, etc.
Also by sending your E-MAIL, we will be glad to help you with any mountaineering questions you may have about Greek Mountains and -what is most important for us- your opinion about our site.
With mountaineering regards
