Ascent Trip Report

A couple of boulder fields to scramble through on the way up, with parts of the trail also being quite muddy. Weather was very bad, raining with poor visibility, and I turned around just short of the summit due to the conditions. Near the summit, there is a final scramble which seemed exposed (the path was not overly clear either), poor visibility and wet weather made it too risky.
