Ascent Trip Report

On a business trip to Bangalore, and my friends decided we should sign up for a "night trek". This involves a busload of passengers being directed up a trailhead to a summit, with sticks, tents, and sleeping bags available for those who want it. We didn't take any of the extra stuff and had a pleasant bivy under the stars, and enjoyed a hazy sunrise through the pollution.

Was it fun? Absolutely. It was virtually everyone's first "trek" which was actually far more entertaining than annoying (this is a trivial walk-up!) . The granite quality is great in places for some fun friction steps as well.
