Ascent Trip Report

We parked our car at the lot at 53.617833, -9.673111. There are locked gates at the end of the parking lot, but it is obvious that the trail begins after the gates. There are two options. Go to the left side of the fence and later jump over the fence, or climb the gates and walk to the right side of the fence. Both are equally muddy. Straight up on the slope to the ridge. Then a ridge walk. Poor trail, but not much needed. Maybe one or more kilometres on the summit plateau. Multiple outcrops can be seen as HP, but one looks a little higher. Nice views. A few minutes later, we took the same route down, but made small detours for views and also visited a waterfall close to the parking. A good start to the day.

1h50 up, 2h05 down (including detours and waterfall), 3h55 roundtrip.
