What a wonderfull mountain, Prehaps the most memorable day of my life upto press. Very tricky and steep in some places with plenty of grade 3 pitches, perfect day too. HAD 2 VERY LARGE ROCK FALLS WITHIN THE FIRST TWO FOURS OF THE CLIMB. very scary i tell you. I would definatly recommend you to hire a guide as a good life asurance if everything goes tits up as it quite easily could do. bare in mind aswell it has 1 of the highest death rates in the world!!! but its 1 you MUST do.
