Ascent Trip Report

Western side, from Dadreen. I just pointed myself at the mountain and navigated the terrain as I saw it. Twas fairly cold (st Stephens day) and some big gusts near the top had me a bit afraid. The top ridgeline (leading along to peak) was hectic, mad winds and totally frozen. Was crawling at some points. Good experience though.

Couple kms thru boggy fields on approach, up and down in total 3.5 hours (though I'd be running a fair bit of it).
