Guiby Peak. How hard can it be?
Well, this turned out to be one of the most challenging hikes I've ever done. Firstly because there is no path. Literally, there is no visible path. All I had was a GPS track left by past explorers and I was doing my best to follow it through the dense vegetation, climbing the nearly vertical rock faces and powering through thorny vines designed to entrap and the treacherous slippery earth. (The shaded gully area is where you had to climb)
The hike was not actually that difficult, but going into the unknown - that was the challenging part. Knowing that you had to go up, but there were multiple ways to do and not knowing whether you'll end up against any barrier. However, we made it to the shoulder (the summit required more rock climbing expertise) and were able to admire the views in the ice cold freezing wind.
We should have been forewarned of the difficulties that lay ahead when we couldn't even find the path to start. This was an area with a large number of thorny vines and plants, and at the end of the day, my hand looked like the aftermath of handling a porcupine.
Recommendation - don't attempt it. I’m not going back there again. (Unless you have access to the private path found on hunting grounds.)
