Hest, 819m Map

No real path and poor markings due to very little use. Most parts of the hike are very steep with lose rocks and slippery vegetation. Do not try this unless you know what you are doing. If you do this hike, let somebody know. The summit has a very rewarding 360 view of the surroundings.



Scrambling up mountains and along technical trails with moderate fall exposure. Handholds are necessary to navigate the trail in its entirety, although they are not necessary at all times. Some obstacles can be very large and difficult to navigate, and the grades can often be near-vertical. The challenge of the trail and the steepness of the grade results in very strenuous hiking. Hikes of this difficulty blur the lines between "hiking" and "climbing".
