  • Together with his wife to climb the peak. All the studied, prepared. With them were flashlights, raincoats, water, warm clothes. Climb hard. By the time 3-3, 5:00 with frequent stops. Rose is not in season, so no cafes, no lights-nothing. The pitch-black and staircase. Climbing and met the dawn, not seeing anything-was fog, thick fog. Experienced a huge disappointment. At the top was neither promised nor tea monash'ego Halva. Everything is closed. All the cold, damp, foggy. Going down under the clouds, saw a small terrain and waterfalls. If you would see at least half of that could put five. Tips: go not in season can be at your own risk. Not to get lost in the beginning (about such read), after the bridge turn left, then right and look for the yellow sign with a pointer to the ladder. About leeches nobody wrote in the first third of the ways gathered three and wife of one. Place to visit: nothing to see experienced meet after the strongest fatigue.
