Didn't quite know what to expect.We are experienced hikers but not climbers.The IV route was perfect - grade B scrambling but mainly straight forward hiking.Our guide, Johann, was superb.Knowledgable, attentive, enthusiastic and a master at gauging the group's abilities (5 of us).Worth every penny.

Hi Casey. I strongly recommend a guide for India Venster, as the route involves scrambling and exposure to heights.
