Olympos - Zilnia - S. Face
The routes "Ekkremes" and "Fouko". "Ekkremes" starts left and ends right, while "Fouko" starts right and ends left.
The first ascent of the route "Fouko" (VII-, 220m) was realized on 28/6/1997 by V. Galanis - H. Haldogeridou.
The line moves next to the route "Ekremes". These two lines meet and cross each other and they have a common 5th pitch. The 5th pitch requires self-control, because after the passage on top of the belay (VII-) which is protected, follows a run-out up to a narrow ledge and from there a traverse to the left leads to the belay. This pitch, during the opening-up of the route, was protected with three bolts, but on 16/5/2001 V. Galanis - A. Doris brought it back to its initial state by leaving only one bolt at the passage over R4, just like D. Bountolas - H. Delimpaltas had done when they opened-up "Ekkremes".
