Description

From just before Hizha Vihren, follow the red marked trail to the west that climbs steeply. After the first few hundred meters, you are completely above the tree line. The trail continues being very steep as you reach the headwall of the hanging valley.

From here, you traverse to the south to attain the ridge and then swing to the north where the marble pyramid of Vihren rises above you. A short, flat section allows you a brief rest before the final push towards the summit where you scramble over some very rocky terrain.
