Ascent Trip Report

Set out at 6:45 from Sani Top Lodge Backpackers through thick mist. Had to take shoes off to cross Sani 'River'. While crossing the first small ridge heard and saw the shepherds releasing their flocks. We got to the crest of the first ridge near/at Matqaseti (10480 ft on my altimeter) at 8:51. Hiking partner not prepared for the cold/misty wind. Turned around there.
