From St. George's to Mt. Moritz summit

From my hike yesterday it was too obvious that my next destination is supposed to be the summit of Mt. Moritz. Unlike Mt. Melville, the peak seems to be completely free and a 360 degree view is guaranteed.

Therefore I decided to walk back, just far enough to be outside the village  and find a straight route to the summit. A very steep and slippery hill through a bamboo forest brought directly beneath the steep south face of the hill.



From there on it was a fight through the waist high grass and rock boulders, but soon after I was on the summit. This ascent is not recommended for average hik…
