Ascent Trip Report

Parked on the minor road about 1.5km NE of Adrao. Followed the track in a generally W direction (narrowly avoiding being stone-blasted by a group of trail-bikers going up the same track), then, at about 1120m, branched off to the right on a good path till about 1300m. After that, the route was easy animal tracks round the false summit and on to the actual summit.
