Crazy elevation gain calculations for Mount Hymettos (Athens, Greece)
I've just uploaded from my MacBook a double climb to the radar station at the summit of Mount Hymettos and back, starting from approx. 200 m above sea level. The station is at an altitude of 1000 m. That gives a total of just over 1600 m (there are two small declines on the climb). So the max possible elevation is 1650. But Strava calculated 2501 m altogether. This is crazy and takes the kick out of my participation in the monthly climbing challenge -- I don't want to cheat since a trophy won on the basis of that calculation would be psychologically worthless.
