Ascent Trip Report

Was forced to stop about 800 yards from the summit due to a previous hiker descending and reported a “robbery” of his backpack at the summit from 5 young men/locals with machetes and guns! He looked quite frightened. We had 2 tourist policemen with our group of 10 plus 3 guides and with a discussion amongst all of them and the tour operator they recommended and basically demanded that we go no further in case of an ambush and for our safety. Of course I did not agree but I was outnumbered! The area is known for local bandits so proceed with caution and minimal supplies.
