The route increases in difficulty from Skala to Mytikas. From refuge A (Spilios Agapitos Refuge at 2.040 m) the path becomes quite steep and after about 20 minutes follows Hondro Mesorachi ridge until it reaches the path for Zonaria on the right at 2.480 m. A few metres further on the path towards Stavraities and Agios Antonios bears to the left.
Route: Medium Difficulty
Follow the main path, which is a relatively steep E4 path through a bare alpine landscape and after approximately one hour the path ends at Skala peak (2.866 m).
From here continue following the red markings on the rocks along the route called Kakoskala (bad steps), thus named due to the natural steps which lead to Mytikas. It should be noted that this stretch of the route is quite challenging.
