Ascent Trip Report

It's a goldilock scramble: not too crazy, not too easy, just right.

What can I say? It's one of my top 3 favorite scrambles. Minimal length approach, and then an easy/moderate scramble all the way up.

There is a further summit that can be reached, and I have done that, but I find the first one the best. Pleasant views, just the right point to cool off, recover and go all the way back down.

If you're fit, 2.5 hours up, 1.5 hours down. If you're knees can take the abuse, run up and run down, and trim 1/2 hour off the round trip.
