CLIMBING IPSARION

Climbed two-thirds of the way up Ipsarion years ago and heard the last third is the most difficult? Any advice on whether you need walking gear for the last ridge? Not getting any younger and it's still on my Bucket List! Travelling in June 2022 so it may be hot!

    Ipsarion nowadays is quite a challenge as due to heavy rainfall some 3 years back we had land slides, and wherever the water rushed down it widened and carried huge boulders and tree trunks left and right. so now the start is a bit dodgy as one has to climb over big stones.
    Once you are on the proper path, no problem but yes it is steep, narrow and slippery due to the small pine cones.
    The path from beginning to end is very well marked and certainly worthwhile completing. I would advise good footwear, walking sticks and plenty of water as there is none up on the top...!
    June is a good time to go and actually if you feel like company, Myself and a friend (Melissa) are avid walkers and always willing!
