Ascent Trip Report

Went up in quite good weather with a guide from Mountain Guides, some crevasses were seen, but then total white out on the summit caldera and then snow and rain at the summit.

No need for crampons as the snow was soft

Came back down soaking wet, not the nicest of experiences, but peak bagged!
