We new it was going to be hot, but we didn’t realise just HOW hot. The forecasts that I saw suggested that the temperature would be between 26 and 30 deg C. However it turns-out that the temperature reached 40 deg C!
It started off pleasantly eno
ugh and we even had a bit of shade.
But then the heat started to rise. Coming from -5 deg C in Finland didn’t help my group. Ulla is a fit a lady. She has hiked all over the world including some pretty big mountains, but the heat was too much for her and we had to summon help to get her off the mountain.
The guys who came to assist were fantastic and after rehydration, Ulla was able to walk off the mountain herself.
