This hike was moderately difficult and definitely worth the effort! We completed it in 4.5 hrs to the summit and back. Some steep ascents in there but lots of moderate up and down for the middle portion. Getting to the summit requires a bit of comfort navigating over boulders while on a ridge but felt quite safe for us as climbers, should be doable for anyone with some comfort scrambling. And the scrambling was definitely the most fun aspect of the hike! The 360degree panoramic view was pretty constant from 2km on. It was quite cold and windy on the ridge so be prepared for being very exposed to the elements. Totally recommend this hike, its a rewarding one that offers a good challenge and some hard-to-beat views!
