Ascent Trip Report

1h55 up, 20 mins at summit, 1h30 down. As per Mclellan route but started lower, at N36.90697° E32.14608° 2065m, as their trailhead was occupied by sheep with dog, so I took sheep track to pass right of Mclellans trailhead and joined their route a little higher up - see GPS track. Took more direct descent for variety, no particular advantage. Last 20km of approach alternates between unpaved and paved, plenty of potholes but 2WD fine. 1h15 from Gundogmus to TH.

Cool and cloudy at start, breezy on ascent, fine dramatic summit, hot in descent, good view of snow finches.

Last of 10 western Turkey ultras in an 8 day week, now back to Antalya for late evening flight home to UK.
