Ascent Trip Report

After finishing our drive across from Bey/ Kizlar with excellent breakfast en route - not the expected drive-up!

Road closed for last 6km for construction (for 2 weeks we were told) hence parked at barrier (N36.54217° E29.18807°, 1225m) and walked up road, 2hrs, hot sun initially then patchy cloud gave respite. HP currently a cairn of rough boulders although small forest lookout building opposite appears to be on natural highpoint.

We headed upstairs and were given free tea by forest lookout man (in residence with wife and kids) while watching paragliders taking off, then got a lift back down, kindly offered by one of the paragliders minibus drivers before we even asked. Then lunch in shade of tree before 6hr drive NW for Boz Dagi tomorrow
