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.

The only way to do this hike is the barely visible and almost unmarked trail right up the face. Definitely difficult at times but worth the challenge and can be pretty safe is you are not wanting to take any huge risks.
