Ascent Trip Report

We had planned to hike up from the parking area but the weather was closing in and I thought it likely the clouds would envelope the summit before we got up there. So we decided to use the cable car and caught the first cabin of the day; timetabled for 09:00 but actually at 09:15. 455 metres in 4 minutes! Good choice as we had great views in all directions over this marvellous volcanic region, albeit with several heavy showers passing over, but were down before more continuous rain set in.
