Ascent Trip Report

Following the path up the centre of the temple complex at 11.30pm, I passed groups of people chanting. From here on I had that whole mountain to myself. It is constant ascent until almost at the top, fairly gentle at first but mostly steep, arduous and unrelenting.
It is quiet and quite beautiful climbing upwards trough the open forest. Near the top I get lost the weather turns bad and it gets tough.
