The road ends where the trail to Crete's highest mountain, Psiloritis, starts. From there you have a nice view of the mountain and in May, when I was there, there was still some snow here and there on the mountain. Fortunately, not on the way there. However, I had chosen this climb not for the view, but for the challenge, as this is, in my opinion, the toughest climb on Crete. Right from the start there are stretches of 12-13-14% in it. However, Crete's climbs are mainly stepped, so there are always some flatter bits in between the steep sections. However, between kilometres 3.5 and 5 (I started 500m earlier than the route above) there is a section that is constantly steep. Here it is gruelling. Fortunately, this is a stretch with hairpin bends , so you always have a target point. After the steep section you come to a kind of chalet and there are clearly two pillars next to the road. From here, the walk improves with flatter sections and descents. Here you have a bit more time to enjoy the scenery on your left. After 9 kilometres or so, you turn back in between the mountains and it gets a bit steeper again. Here and there goats walk next to and sometimes on the road. The last 800 metres to the summit looms like a wall in front of you. This is where the climb is the steepest at about'17 % and this lasts quite long for your feeling. After the turn, it flattens slightly to the highest point and then you descend a few hundred metres to the car park of refuge Lakos Migerou.

De weg eindigd waar de trail naar de hoogste berg van Kreta, de Psiloritis, start. Vanaf daar heb je een mooi zicht op de berg en in mei, toen ik er was, lag er nog wat sneeuw hier en daar op de berg. Gelukkig niet op de weg er naar toe. Ik had echter deze klim niet gekozen voor het uitzicht, maar voor de uitdaging, want dit is naar mijn mening de zwaarste klim op Kreta. Vanaf het begin zitten er al stukken in van 12-13-14%. De beklimmingen op Kreta zijn echter voornamelijk trapsgewijs, waardoor er steeds wat vlakkere stukjes zitten tussen de steile gedeeltes in. Tussen kilometer 3,5 en 5 (ik begon 500 m eerder dan de route hierboven) zit echter een stuk wat constant steil is. Hier is het afzien. Gelukkig is dit een stuk met haarspeldbochten , waardoor je steeds een richtpunt hebt. Na het steile stuk kom je bij een soort chalet en staan er duidelijk twee pilaren naast de weg. Vanaf hier gaat het beter lopen met vlakkere stukken en afdalinkjes. Hier heb je wat meer tijd om van de omgeving te genieten aan je linkerkant. Na een kilometer of 9 draai je weer wat meer tussen de bergen in en wordt het weer wat steiler. Hier en daar lopen er geiten naast en soms op de weg. De laatste 800 meter naar de top doemt als eens muur voor je op. Hier is de klim het steilste met zo'n 17 % en dit houdt voor je gevoel best lang aan. Na de bocht vlakt het iets af tot het hoogste punt en daarna daal je nog een paar honderd meter af tot de parkeerplaats van refuge Lakos Migerou.
