|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||4813 ft / 1467 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA soaker of a hike as weather steadily worsened towards the top then heavy rain with high winds up there. Not possible to tour the crater so started down on the steep trail that was now a torrent. Part way down saw a substantial waterfall coming out of the mountain that wasn't present on the way up. A success just for having made it up and down the volcano.
