Route description:
Straightforward trail from Saddle Hut to the summit.
I did this climb shortly after arrival to Saddle Hut. Geoff came along and it was a nice trip to a good viewpoint. We left Saddle hut at 1150 and were at the summit at 1215. One may note that my GPS showed a summit elevation in the range 3810-3812 meter, it is likely that 3820 meter is too high. After enjoying the view and taking plenty of time to look around, we left at 1230 and were back down at the huts by 1250.
