DescriptionEvery time we walked by Ambaria, we saw climbers on this route. It turns out that it was for a good reason. Sudwestkante is relatively easy, but also lots of fun. This is a great introduction to climbing in Meteora. There's an easy approach, a small cave at the base of the climb to store your gear, the climbing is enjoyable and the view from the summit is great. Don't forget to sign the summit register while you're up there.
You must bring double ropes to get down from this route. Most of the pitches are more than 40m. You will not be able to get down on a single rope
P1 5.7 with 5 or 6 bolts. 35m.
P2 5.4 with one bolt. 45m.
P3 5.5 with three bolts. 45m.
P4 Fourth to easy 5th class. Very low angle. 35m.
(Thanks for the info Brian)
