This one was a bit more off the beaten track than I had expected. Looking at the site from aerial photos, it appears that a road wraps around the summit, however, a look at a topological map makes it clear that between the road and the summit the climb is almost vertical.
The path leading to this site was only about a 20 minute drive from 5B/CY-009, which I had activated earlier in the day. I have highlighted in red a dirt road that branches off from E740 and bends around towards the site.
When I pulled off E740, however, I immediately saw that there was a “do not enter” sign on the dirt road.
There is still plenty of room for a car to park on the side of the road, so I picked up my gear and started up the dirt road on foot. I got to the point marked “x” and kept going, following the road around eastwards and finally southward. The further I got, the more the road dipped down and the higher the wall of rock to my right, however. After a while I realized that the road would not be any help at all and returned to point “x”.
There is a not-quite-path at point “x” (35.08569, 32.63288) , which leads into an mostly open field that pitches up gently. I started walked south and upwards to a ridge and then southward. I continued walking along roughly parallel to E740 on a hillside trail towards a saddle point (“y”, 35.084820, 32.633310).
From there, there is a relatively steep climb (“z”35.082700, 32.634330) up towards a ridge (“zz”, 35.082130, 32.635570) that runs to the summit.
There is no real trail and from absence of litter, I have the impression that not many people make it to this summit.
There is no trig point at the summit, just a somewhat flat area, which would be good for setting up a mast. The trees up there are not very tall, but proved adequate to support my end-fed halfwave antenna. Here’s a panorama from the peak.
In the first photo, above, you might make out a bit of snow on the mountain in the distance. On the way back home, I did stop briefly at the side of the road to make my first Cypriot snowball.
