Karagianni’s path is a steep path connecting the village Sykia with Giona’s peak. It is located on the edge of Sykia wall, the biggest wall in Greece. It is often used by climbers to retreat from sykia wall climbing. In dry conditions is maybe a little dull due to the existence of extensive scree. In winter, scree has converted in snow ramps, and it can make one very nice mountaineering day. Maximum difficulty: 40 to 50 degrees snow or ice. Usually the descent is done by other less inclined routes.
