“Climbed on Saturday, was perfect weather, low winds, clear with a lot of sun. Having never done a ridge (was so close to doing CMD winter but my mate bailed just as we roped up) I was surprised at how easy it is to get caught out on this. In places it truly is a knife edge as a gust of wind could easily send you plummeting 1000ft+ off the right side. My advice is, make sure the weather conditions are good (if inexperienced) and absolutely have a head for heights. It's pretty much a no return as climbing back down will require very good skill. If you're not confident in your ability, rope up with your group and if you're taking children, absolutely rope up. Once past the knife edge it becomes relatively basic and the most prominent danger has passed. There is a bail out route further along but you have to do the ridge first. Tips on how to pass the knife edge: stay low on the left hand side (towards Snowdon) and always keep your hand on the top rocks. It doesn't matter if it takes you a long time as you could take the short route off the side”

“Made the summit around 6:15AM (10/3/15). Light frost on the way up made some footing slick. Clouds rolling over the summit definitely were cold. Good protection shelters on the way up and at the summit. Wind forecast was accurate for this day. The winds turned me back 2 weeks prior.”

“I was born and brought up in Shimbiris. It is not a part of Calmadow but it is a part of Surud mountain. This is not the highest peak but Guribore which is white breast shaped hill on top Mount Sheba is much higher than Shimbiris. This mountain is situated only 13 km to the west of Shimbiris. You can not travel to both places by car but you must walk several kilometers from the nearest location where you get off the vehicle. There are no tourism accommodations but you can put up your tent in the forest or stay at night with the local people if you are afraid of the tigers. There are no special logistics for the visitors can take. This is a sacred land where uncountable medicine trees are grown. The visitors enjoy to chop a piece of Maqari stick used for scaring insects and protection against bites of the poisonous snakes. As you take the stick by the hand, the snakes wont come near you.”
