|Date:||Sunday, June 30, 2019|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6831 ft / 2082 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDid this one early in the day due to heat wave hitting most of Europe. Basically a hike until the cable-protected scramble. We saw a young boy (maybe 6 or 7) go up, so it's not terribly difficult, though we did observe a couple of young French hikers taking their time on the climb down. I may have oversold this as an "easy hike" to my wife - the ascent and descent, while all on a trail, are pretty steep and pebbly in places. Hikers will have no problem but novices may not like falling down a lot.
Views limited by what I assume were a heat/humidity-induced haze. Still, a beautiful little corner of the world.
