Driving up to this from the south, past the two big ranges, and only having a rough idea of it, other mountains were speculatively raised to its holy mountain status. But when this one did ultimately appear, it relegated them once more, as it is a fine looking thing - a slightly different colour to its surroundings - stout and majestic. Having heard it was a popular destination, I anticipated a good solid path. But that wasn't to be and this presented a bit of a scramble at times, often on pretty lose ground. The path from the ruined buildings was marked by an aging sign saying the route was not permissible. I took it nonetheless and then got up the ridge on the northern side. Explored the summit and the remaining part of the ridge. Then descended down the large slabs SW. Would have been better to ascend this way directly.
