Description 

Nice casual dome in the shadow of much larger domes (as yet unclimbed). Primarily an excellent dayhike, but the summit requires some easy technical climbing.

Getting There 

See map. Follow dirt road through the Eastern side of Cumbira village until it ends in another small village. Follow the trail leaving the end of the village passing through local cemetery with ancient and very interesting circular rock tombs. Trend South East on trails (use imagery from map) until reaching the Northern toe of the slab. Follow the slab to the Northeast ridge.
