Route finding was challenging as one rock ledge would often dropped off to sheer cliffs below. The ridgeline is very technical requiring constant concentration. With much effort we managed to make it to the third of four heights of land that make up the last section of ridgeline. Mount Perseus is the highest and farthest east of the four.

We had two options for the route back. Firstly, retrace our steps the same way we came.
