Ascent Trip ReportArriving at the extensive complex of buildings near the summit at dusk, I hastened towards the summit tower. Approaching in this manner from the East, one can take a road curving round to the left to approach the summit marker, which is on the ground to the west of the tower. The tower can be part-ascended to a viewing gallery through an automatic gate (2 Euro, need coins). I was alone on top, it was cold and very windy. I was jogging both ways to keep warm.
