Ascent Trip ReportLeft Pokana Bay (low lake level) at 7am, trek approx. 11km along neighbouring ridgelines over 8:30 hr period. Got within 1.8km of summit, turned back due to likely remaining time required to reach summit and non-desire to walk all the way back to camp in the dark! Heat and difficult terrain over steep button grass contributed to generally slow progress.
