Ascent Trip Report

Very fun traverse from the lakeside camp. 5th class moves, but over water, you could swim if you wished, but staying dry is a bit difficult. Hot spring in the shallows after crossing the wash. Great views! DO NOT attempt a bushwack straight throught the thick grass and forest near the steaming vents, rather go around to where the boulders are. The grass hides many ankle and femur snapping drop offs completely and is quite difficult to push through in many places anyways. Just take my word for it its pretty miserable. Baru Jari on the other hand is completely worth it and maybe the best part of our traverse of Rinjani. 0 people.
