  |  Distance: 32 km  |  Elevation: +3132/-3132 m  |  Difficulty: 10/10 

The most difficult of all on Olympus. A route that requires exceptional skills, excellent physical endurance and … courage. Crossing the Kopsi Naum requires taking a rope and descent equipment with you, i.e. additional kilograms, which makes the attempt difficult. It also requires high resistance to exposure and high concentration, because the path in many parts is technically very difficult.

The route consists of four distinct sections, each with its own character very clearly marked:
1. Gommarostalos – the steepest climb on Olympus, with wonderful views and a short rock climbing section secured by permanently installed ropes.
2. Rema Naum – an unusual dry river, with single boulders sometimes larger than a house.
3. Kopsi Naum – the most spectacular fragment. Climbing narrow as a razor rock edge with three fragments of a rappeling
4. Kofto – a beautiful piece at the end. The shortest connection between the Muses Plateau and the Reufe A. and Prionia. all the way down.
