Ascent Trip Report

We parked our car at the monument parking at 53.666277, -9.781416. Initially, we planned to hike this peak from the E side, but the road was closed. So we quickly mocked up plan B and drove to the bottom of the W ridge. From the car, we went a little bit uphill on the road. Once we found a reasonable grassy slope, we used it to get to the ridge. Then it's more or less an easy climb on the grassy and muddy terrain. Before the summit plateau, a very light scramble on the steep stony slope. Then almost one kilometre of flat walking. The summit is marked with an "impressive" cairn with a metal bar :) Clear day, nice views. 

2h00 up, 1h35 down, 3h35 roundtrip.
