Easily the best hike I’ve ever done. The entire hike does not have a single dull moment! The climb up to the Hut is vertical and scree the entire time, it took me 2 1/2 hours. I did not rush but also did not take any long breaks, just enough to catch my breath and take a photo. The hike to lake Oesa (which is the starting point for where you break off to the mountaineering route to begin the climb to the Hut) took me 2 1/2 hours also. If you are nervous around heights or have not done any scrambling, maybe hold off on this one as it is very steep. But again, so worth the views!
