Ascent Trip Report

Very cool coastal hike. Started from Atrani and worked my way up the stairs through Minuta and then went northwest up a rocky slope. At the top of the slope, there is a steep rocky section with a sharp dropoff on one side. It looked a slightly precarious at first, but I just followed the marked trail and got through it easily. After this section, I walked on various forest trail for several miles. The shade kept it cool on what was otherwise a hot and humid day. Careful of sheepdogs in this area. Several vicious ones barked and followed me but kept their distance. Continuing along trail 300, I went up and down several intermediate bumps before working myself WNW below the three peaks. The trail here is somewhat overgrown but easily followable. I tried taking a shortcut to cut off some distance and got into a bit of trouble, having to traverse a very narrow ledge with a steep dropoff. The shortcut wound up costing me 15 minutes. The final push to the summit is back in the forest before coming out on top with great views all around. I then descended into Montepertuso where I had lunch and then took the famous Sentiero degli Dei to Bomerano where I caught a bus back to Amalfi.

GPX route is not exact but gives a good outline of the route.
