Ypsiloterafels is the tallest formation in the pic...


Ypsiloterafels is tucked back behind Agios Nikolaos Anapafsas Monastery next to the Teufelstrum (Devils Tower). It contains several high quality multi-pitch routes on its south face in the 5.9-5.10 range and offers great views of the Moni Variaam Monastery from its summit.

Getting There 

To find the approach trail park off the road just past Doupianifels under a wells shaded canopy of trees. Walk up the road and take a left onto a dirt double track. After about 100m or so look for a trail heading right towards Ypsiloterafels. Stay on this trail until it splits and take a right at the split heading uphill. These trails may be a little overgrown but they should still be obvious.
