Ascent Trip ReportFirst trip with Detour Nature, a guided organized group. Very nice hike, perfect weather, beautiful view! Will do again, and will probably add the mount Esther to the hike. If in good shape, it's more interesting to climb during winter since there are no tourists due to the closed mountain road. Be ready with all equipment: poles, snowshoes, crampons, maybe even an ice axe, which I didn't have but would have been useful in some sections.
