Ascent Trip Report

Mid afternoon we make an unscheduled 8km 200m round trip hike from our hotel to nearby summit south of town with Iyasus monastery near summit, comms tower, and viewing platform at highpoint with good view across the town. Photographing monastery itself is discouraged, and initially a security guard was unwilling to let us near the summit area, until a robed cleric came over and OKd us. Apparently a morning visit may be best when church open to public.
