Mt Athos (for men only) stands alone at the very end of the 60 kilometers long peninsula of «Agio Oros» («Holy Mountain») surrounded by the sea. The pyramidal shape op the mountain attracts not only men of God but climbers as well. There are, at least, two known one-day routes up the Mountain: The one ascending by the southern slopes is just a mountain walk (in summer). The northwest ridge is a long more technical and demanding climb only for people used to difficult terrain. For permits tel 2310 252578 or
