Route description:
From the summit of Silki, descend to the saddle separating the two peaks, then ascend grassy patches a bit south of the summit. Gradually, turn left and ascend easy terrain just below the main crest, in order to enter a natural passage that provides easy access to the highest summit.
We had climbed Silki and decided that the time permitted us to also include the nice and more rocky summit to the east in what would consitute a nice round trip, including Beroch Wuha at the end of our circle.
We left Silki around 1140 and had a nice hike across to this "bonus" summit, arriving there at 1300. We waited for Rob and Richard. They had wanted to scramble across a small hump on the connecting ridge, but within 30 minutes we were all together. We descended the same way we had ascended, located the trail connecting the saddle below with the saddle just before Beroch Wuha and took this route instead of first reascending Silki.
