Ascent Trip Report

Track from Tjentiste is mainly gravel/rock and quite well rutted/potholed in places, but still easily manageable in a standard car, at least when dry. From trailhead, route runs initially through a pleasant forest with the path often overgrown by young trees and bushes, but always readily discernible. Nice climb up to summit ridge involves a bit of relatively easy scrambling with four sections with a fixed via ferrata wire to help. Great views along way and at top.
