I received an email from a 71 years old climbers who were ill informed about the severity of the mountain, especially for those who were unprepared. Dour, wrote this to me:
I traversed the Mesilau trail in September this year.
We were ill prepared. And did not have enough food for the trip.
I am an experienced tramper and easily cover 11km in 4-5 hours. We were not advised about extra food. I took plenty of water 2 litre bladder as well as two 650mls bottles.
We all suffered from lack of fuel because we were not advised of the severity of the landscape.
