Amazing views from the top, don't just do the viewpoint! Took us just over 2hrs to reach the top. Terrain is super easy, just quite steep.

Surprisingly easy climb TBH. The track is in great condition and it's never too steep. Did it in a good 4 hours (2 hours up and 1.5 hours down). The views were fantastic! My advice: do it in the late afternoon. Just 2 people on the top when I was there.

The track can seem boring as it's always the same scenery. Icy snow on the last km, but the view from the top is breathtaking, totally worths it! 5h return
