We started the hike quite late at 4pm so we didn’t manage to reach the summit before dark. We opted to camp just a few hundred metres away from the summit where it’s was a bit sheltered around trees. During the day it’s quite hot on the mountain but it gets cold and windy at night.

We pitched our camp, had a nice campfire going and cooked our dinner. We carried a good amount of food and drinks. Next morning, we woke up around 6am for the sunrise.
