An amazing formation with more vertical climbing and larger cobbles than other classics in the area.... a much-appreciated characteristic for comfy belay stances and a reprieve to tip-toeing up a sea of pebbles.
Approach: While driving from Kalambaka to Kastraki, be on the look out for a road on the right, just past the Amabaria formation. Follow this road as it winds underneath Pixari and switchbacks through the EAST side of Kastraki. Park below a small church and follow the steps leading into the woods. After a ~15 minute hike, take a deep trough/path to the left that angles towards the base of Sourloti's south face. As you approach the base, skirt right on the descent trail and then back left above the lower slabs. This deposits you at the shared start for many of the south face climbs.
Descent: After topping out on the south face, head north-east on the formation, down and up a saddle, aiming towards a cairn on the east(right) side. A short (~60 ft) rappel gets you to a single eyebolt on a ledge and to the left of a flaring chimney. One more ~190 ft rappel puts you on the ground in the gully between Sourloti and Modi.
