Ascent Trip ReportParked at: 38.666481, 22.274401. Road is generally not bad, my ‘one liter low’ made it without major difficulties. Approximately 600 maters before trailhead the boulder size of my car was partly blocking the road. Possible to pass it but likely car would hit another stone at the bottom. So stopped before boulder. Anyway, not a big speed difference between driving or walking. After finding trailhead, walked steep iron rich slope (just guessing based on stones color), Latter moderately steep trail goes parallel to the gorge. Climbs grassy valley to the E slope of the peak. And then to the summit. OSM trail was slightly mismatching the real trail. But I must admit that real marked trail was quite optimal and good condition. Actually starting from the trailhead I always seen markers or cairns, all the way to the top. Well-marked and used trail. S summit is obviously lower (maybe 5-10 meters), but never mind, trails was crossing it. Highpoint is marked with a crumbling concrete trig pillar, All surrounding peaks were in clouds but not Giona. Unusual situation.. After ten minutes of nice scenery I try to go down using OSM trail, but soon found myself again on the marked trail.. Anyway, nice hike, good day.
