HikingGreat!

Very rocky limited features on the hike except the streams, light hiking footwear with shank and ankle support needed. Steep ascending beautiful views on the top very precarious coming down in winter as of the smooth rocks suggested getting down way before sun sets.... Think I will stick to rambling for comfort and views

Nice easy track the whole way up. We had truly abysmal weather and almost no visibility at points but the route is well maintained and passable even with water streaming down the path. Descent is markedly quicker than ascent. Hiking poles or a good stick are advantageous in crossing the river about half an hour in, which was high with rainwater and a bit tricky. Thoroughly worthwhile trek.

Hard! But really enjoyed the challenge. Up on the summit for sun up at 7am which was thoroughly worth it.

The sun blasted us for the whole 4 hours. If it’s sunny, take a hat, sunglasses and plenty of water. This walk is difficult and technical in parts.
