STANDIN’ ON TOP OF THE WORLD: Mt Olympos

mount olympos

Why would any climber want to ascend to the thin blade of glacially scoured rock known as the throne of Zeus atop Mount Olympos? This feature stands out with a topography 300 – 500 m above the “Plain of the Muses” which itself is ~2500m above sea level – and sea level is right next to Olympos, emerging from the shores of the Aegaean.

I don’t know why, but as long as he’s there I do wish he’d bring me back a rock sample…

Crazy but sure is a cool picture……
