Took the gondola as I've had enough of hiking in forests. 2 hours from there to the summit, excellent views for the most part. Back down the same way though rumours of a loop via the south ridge would have been worth pursuing from the look of it.
Great views all the way. Had a little rain halfway up but then just nice weather. I was extremely lucky to be on the summit when a lower rain cloud passed by below me and I could se a rainbow from above. A true magnificent moment!
