Ascent Trip Report

Nice and challenging hike. Finding the start of the trail was difficult and we had to get directions from a local. Where the trail leaves the valley and heads up the ridge is not clearly marked so we blundered right past it, but once we located the path up the ridge, it was quite easy to stay on track. Once on the ridge, it gets steep and stays that way. In some parts there are permanent ropes to assist in climbing and I wouldn't recommend tramping if it has rained in the previous 24hrs.
